My Wife and I are so pleased that we booked our stay at the Woodlands Guest House over Easter. Upon arrival we were greeted by Jo and Andy who own this lovely establishment and immediately welcomed us by offering drinks. This personalised approach stood out after a four hour drive.
Car Park: The hotel houses a small car park for approx. 4-5 cars across the road from where the hotel is situated. No issues with parking and was safe.
Guest House: Has recently undergone refurbishment and it shows! Entrance, dining room, sun lounge, sitting/reading rooms are all clean and decorated to a high standard.
Bedroom: We opted for the 'Watersmeet Room' and were impressed. We often stay in 4 or 5 star hotels and I am often critical; not this time! This room was on par if not better. It consisted of a L shaped balcony so we could have a drink and watch the sunset/sunrise, had a large comfortable firm bed, high ceiling, large sash windows, underfloor heating to wet room and even an anti mist mirror in the bathroom. This is a high spec room as shown on the website and I was advised that all rooms followed this standard.
Breakfast: Made to order, dietary requirements accommodated, sausages/eggs sourced from a local farm and was delicious. Every morning we were fed well in readiness for the long walks ahead of us.
Verdict: Jo and Andy truly understand the value of customer service by putting themselves in the shoes of their guests. It for this reason we will be recommending to our friends and family. We wish them all the best in their business and hope to be back soon!
