Just returned from a three night stay in The Nook. The staff were friendly and helpfull so checking in was painless. Our room was a little small but clean and comfortable the only problem we had was that it was to hot. Despite turning both radiators off the room stayed continually uncomfortably hot, we had to sleep with the window open despite the poor weather. Breakfast is really good and there is definitely no need to leave the dining room hungry. There is a sitting room which guests can use which is very comfortable.
On the negative side the rooms were not serviced New Year's Day which I believe they should have been or at least extra towels should have been made available. The hotel does make a small charge for parking is not advertised.
The main issue for me was the location, this hotel is situated at the top of a very steep hill so walking back after a day or evening out is challenging if your not reasonably fit.
Overall a good stay.
