In short very odd and cheap.
Fantastic 18th century building in stunning surroundings. Balance that with Chopin Polonaises as loud piped music at dinner and breakfast; a choice that is just wrong! Then add the bizarre experience that was breakfast: 1/2 way through we were asked if we wanted more from the buffet as the waiter was going to clear it away (and did) then at 0959 he told us to move to the reception to finish our coffees so he could clear our table - amazing!
Dinner was included in the £99 DB&B for two rate. Mostly it was good but desserts, which outside an inclusive rate would have been £6.95 each, comprised three blueberries and two strawberries, bought-in meringues and aerosol cream!
The bedroom was equipped with everything needed to make it unremarkable in positive or negative terms: a tad tired decoration, in the eaves, a good size, adequate shower, splashing of one of the garden's fountains through the open window. Only one bedside table with the wardrobe pushed right next to the bed.
We'd probably go back as at the price, the eccentricities can be overlooked, we'd definitely love to see what the first floor principal bedrooms look like; if they match the house's mahogany main staircase, the mirrored hall, ladies downstairs loo et.al then they must be something to behold.
