The food is, of course, excellent, as many other reviewers have pointed out, but the service is brilliant also - the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed for two nights, eating on both evenings. The food was so gorgeous I really did want to lick the plate, and I still bore my friends talking about it. The room was on the small side, but we knew that when we booked it. It was very well organised, however, so you never felt constricted, and the bed was extremely comfortable. There is obviously room for improvement; we were near the boiler, for example, which could be quite loud, presumably when lots of people were taking a shower. I am giving the hotel an excellent rating overall, however, because issues like this really are minor next to the overwhelming positives. My partner and I loved the place so much we have already booked another 5 days in July.
