Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted, and given a map of the area, along with a brief overview of the local attractions, and a couple of recommendations of where to go to eat.
The hotel was nicely decorated and homely, and very clean (very important to my wife).
Our room was the Edgcombe Suite, which had a very modern bathroom, including a jet-spa bath. Very relaxing after a long day of walking up and down the all of the hills in the area.
There were plenty of sockets in the room for laptops, phone chargers etc., although the wifi was somewhat sketchy, and the signal wasn't very strong in the room, but the residents lounge downstairs offered much better wifi reception, so it wasn't really a problem. Also, you could borrow DVD's to watch in your room, as the TV in the room had built in DVD capability.
The breakfast selection was excellent, and expertly prepared, with cereals, fruit and cooked food all available. Everything was freshly prepared, and our hosts were keen to ensure that we had plenty to eat.
There is on site parking, which is a big plus, and as the town is within easy walking distance, we didn't need to move the car the whole time we were here.
All in all, my wife and I couldn't recommend this hotel enough, and will definitely visit again when in the area.
