I booked one of the courtyard rooms but when I arrived I was upgraded to a room in the main hotel. The room was beautiful and had been recently refurbished and was just right for me.
I had a really excellent meal in the Derwent Restaurant and chose Char-grilled medallions of Fillet with Garlic scented Mash, Carrots and beans finished with
Mushroom and Green Peppercorn Glaze. It was absolutely delicious and there wasn't a scrap of fat on the medallions. I wasn't so keen of the mash preferring the new potatoes.
I chilled in my room but was disturbed by the smells coming from the kithen through my wondow and the noise of said kitchen until about 10.30/11.00. I decided I would try and get a change of room for my second night.
I woke reasonably early and had to keep my window closed because of the breakfast cooking smells. Again there was some noise but not so bad as the previous evening.
I went to reception to ask for a change of room explaining my reasons and the fact that I had originally booked a courtyard room. I told them I was happy to have been upgraded but the room being over the kitchen didn't suit me. I was immediately offered anothe room which was in the courtyard and can say if was again a beautiful room and not noise or smells!
I cannot fault the staff who were very helpful and friendly especially teh receptionist who changed my room.
The grounds and situation of the hotel is fantastic being right in teh country side with it's own extensive lovely grounds complete with a duck pond. Everything is very well kept and cared for.
I have given the hotel a 4 rating only because of the room I first stayed in.
