The Lypiatt should have impressed us as it has other reviewers - but somehow we left feeling a little let down. It is beautifully furnished, the breakfast was enjoyable and we thought the honesty bar a welcome touch. Our room was small (top floor) but we expected that due to other review comments. So why our reservations? We decided it was due to detailed flaws. Some examples. We received a polite welcome but were not shown to our room. There was nowhere that provided a 'dressing table' function; drying hair & applying makeup whilst sitting on the floor? It should not be so. The bathroom only had lights at one end - so the basin and beyond was gloomy. Why the oversight? The young lady serving breakfast was nervous and awkward. Are any of these things show-stoppers? Not really, but they eroded the professionalism and value of Lypiatt, such that we would think twice about returning.
