This is a really lovely place. The reception staff are extremely helpful and efficient, getting us extra water for our room when we'd run out etc. Bed was lovely, sheets crisp. We had a standard room, which was a little on the small side - if we'd been staying longer than a weekend, I may well have unpacked properly and made use of the drawers, but as it was, it felt like our clothes were all over the place, and bag shoved under the dressing table as it was the only place it would fit! "wardrobe" was a corner of the room that had doors across it, so it wasn't spacious by any means. None of this marred our stay though. BUT, anyone who has room 5 and stays in the winter beware - the bathroom is FREEEEEEEZING!!! It was the coldest weekend of the year, and snowing. It's a gally bathroom, so even though there's a towel rail and fan heater at one end to keep you warm whilst you're on the loo, at the sink and shower end there's nothing. I didn't want to have to go in there unless absolutely necessary!
Hotel was very quiet overall, although the grill and pub were busy. The service by some of the staff were outstanding - you can imagine wanting to have a light lunch, and not being able to find a table frustrating when you're staying there, but we were directed to a table in front of the fire that was reserved, but not for another hour or so - nice touch.
Breakfast was lovely - good choice, well presented, and the grill itself is a fabulous setting. We ate there on the Friday night, and our only complaint was that one of the waiting staff obviously wasn't au fe with wine pouring etiquette, and we ended up essentially with half a bottle of chablis each in our glasses!
We would definitely recommend, and return, although I think we'd put a request in not to have room 5.......
