Stayed a couple of nights at this hotel after reading other good reviews.
Hotel has a lovely feel to it and the staff were all great, from the duty manager who held the front door open for us while we got our luggage to the breakfast serving staff who were very attentive and couldn't do enough. Bedroom in the main house was great, nice firm bed, good pillows and everything worked. The bathroom, was similarly spotlessly clean and also recently been refurbished by the look of it. The décor in the bar / lounge area is a bit dated, but this adds a bit of character and the sofas and chairs are comfortable, open fire particularly welcoming with the weather being bad. Breakfast was excellent, loads of extras which you wouldn't normally expect (fresh fruit, conserves, pastries, freshly squeezed orange juice) as well as cooked English. Only small gripe would be the scrambled egg; hotels are forgetting how to make this properly with milk or cream and slowly cooked in a saucepan. Didn't eat dinner at the hotel due to family commitments.
Overall, what a great independent hotel, and a great credit to the staff who make it "work". Go here and you will be reminded what great service is all about.More
