This hotel used to be full during the Glyndebourne season but no longer. We paid £215 including breakfast for our double room and the same for a Twin room for grown up "children". The rooms are mostly lovely but we too miss the tea/coffee in the rooms with pretty china and a great selection of teas. Our room, 17, was by the back staff entrance and we were woken early by doors banging. Lunchtime bar service not good. We did not eat in the restaurant. At least the breakfast was ok and waitress efficient.The whole place is now lacking in atmosphere as almost empty and something is just not right. Very sad as we have been going there nearly every year for a long time.
