The hotel forms part of a small independent company and has a really nice feel to it,with many of its staff having been there a long time and greeting regulars as old friends,on their return.We were fortunate to be in a suite facing the park which was lovely,the shower enormous and the bathroom spacious my only complaint was the light in the centre of the mirror which made shaving difficult.
The big plus is the complimentary mini bar and Nespresso and tea making facilities. Included is water to Champagne Spirits, snacks,Ben & Jerry ice cream and more and this is replenished every day---It could make a alcholic of you BUT so nice.
We only had continental breakfast once and a light meal both were excellent and served in the restaurant with fun furnishings The lounge for tea is a lovely room with a hanging wall garden. The afternoon tea rightly won an award is served here
My only complaint is there is no tariff to include breakfast which is a pity and although excellent is not cheap.
