Well... what a lovely house!!!
Karen and Nick were brilliant on the phones at any time of day, and even though we didn't get face to face contact with Karen, we had the pleasure of seeing Nick in the mornings for breakfast.
The breakfast was fantastic, and they catered well for my other half - taking the mushrooms and tomatoes off and replacing with a sausage one morning, but being unable to do anything about it the next day... that seemed a little odd!
The communal areas we didn't use, but were nicely furnished and spacious.
Small chocolates on the bed for us, and hot chocolate, tea and biscuits in the room! Lovely touch!!! (Kettle 'on' button was broken but still usable!)
They also provide robes, which we didn't use, and offer a later (slightly more restricted) breakfast with details in the room. We were also using the free wi-fi, although we only managed to connect to it the second day - it couldn't find us the first night!
Overall, comfortable stay! Would stay again for sure.
Not too pricey considering the wedding party mainly stayed in the St Michaels Hotel & Spa which totalled over £300 for 2 nights!
The only thing we found to be a bit off-putting was the shouting about our order that we heard in the kitchen (after we had requested for the replacement mentioned above for the breakfast) and this made us feel very uncomfortable for causing an argument, there was also no explanation from the server until she placed the breakfasts down in front of us, with the mushrooms on. It may have been nice to offer an extra egg if they couldn't offer extra meat... and some parts of the room may need a paint touch up.
These are the only reasons for 4/5.
Thank you for the pleasant stay.
