We were met by the owner and given a friendly welcome also help was given with our luggage.On arrival we were led down a staircase from the ground floor. I presume this area is yet to be decorated! Our room was very large and tastefully decorated and it even contained a settee. Everything was nice and clean. One of the bedside lights was not working and it was attended to right away. There was plenty of storage space including a walk in cupboard. Unfortunately the door was low and my husband knocked his head. A notice above this would be useful. The bathroom was large and in good decorative order. During our stay the weather was dull and not much light entered our room number 14. Also the view was partially blocked by the owners property which was situated a few yards from our window. We had requested a quiet room and this is what we got but if views matter to you choose another room.
We ate in the hotel restaurant for both evenings during our stay. The staff were pleasant and our food was excellent. The Dining Room had been recently decorated and it was most impressive.
Later we had a drink in the bar and once again pleasant staff a relaxing atmosphere and tasteful decor.
Breakfast was a great disappointment. We had to ask for our breakfast spoons to be replaced and the coffee was lukewarm and did not taste at all nice. Both things were attended to in a pleasant manner but although the coffee was hot it was watery and still of poor flavour. My husbands cooked breakfast was alright but my cheese omelette was overcooked. The foollowing morning our breakfast was alright but still the same lukewarm watery coffee.
Overall we did enjoy our stay and would consider returning.
