We stayed the night 01/02/14 and had an absolutely lovely time.We were on a living social deal which was a bargain.We had a basic bedroom which was pleasant.Lovely hotel bar with log fire.Great gin selection! We had a gorgeous meal in the restaurant and excellent breakfast in the morning. Our only disappointment was the male receptionist who,on our arrival offered no greeting of any sort,merely saying "name?" then proceeded to tell us that as we were booked to eat at 8 p.m. and to expect slow service.I asked if they were short staffed in the restaurant,he replied "no,too many people eating"! He then told us our room number but gave us no information e.g.breakfast times..and then turned his back on us! He turned out to be the exception as all the other staff we encountered were exceptionally helpfull and friendly...bar staff,restaurant staff and the female on reception in the morning.
This is a wonderful hotel and we hope to return.
