We stayed at the hotel for a wedding. Customer service was good and our room was ready much earlier than the advertised time of 3pm.
The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom very smart and sparkling clean. The curtain arrangement looked good but didn't block out the light which meant our toddler woke at 5. Ask for a room without a loft window to avoid this.
Bar service was ok.
Main disappointment was the cooked breakfasts. Eggs Benedict was just plain weird with a really thin layer of sauce which was grilled so ended up being a tough thin skin on poached eggs- quite unpleasant. Pancakes and kedgeree also tasted pre cooked and just no brilliant. A pity as the cooked options menu was inventive.
