We stayed here for an overnight stop the day after the festival. We'd never stayed here before so we didn't know what to expect but heard that it was reputed to be haunted. I love all that so excitedly we go; backpack n wellys, done-in and grubby hoping to do some ghost-bothering and wash an inch off ourselves ...
We were greeted warmly and checked in efficiently. The lady who checked us in was very polite and very down to earth, as were all staff I had the pleasure to meet. All staff were solid looking and not transparent.. contrary to my expectations.....
We booked a room with a 4 poster bedroom which massive!
The room had gorgeous period furniture, huge bed, flat screen wall-mounted TV, bath and over-bath shower which packed a punch! Wow - 1st shower in 5 days of the festival and the best yet! Flushing toilet - I was in love!
The bar downstairs soon filled up. I only wish we had stayed for food that evening but we decided to go for a walk and see what other establishments in the area were like. A mistake - but that's a different review for a different day.
We requested a late check-out as my partner was ill and had not slept all night. It was no trouble.
In the morning, I saw the house-keeper and I asked about the place's haunted reputation as I was expecting at least a nudge or an inaudible EVP whisper... but nothing. We were given a tour of the 1st floor's most reputed rooms! How great was that! I would have PAID for that tour!
Unfortunately nothing otherworldly went bump in the night for us... so it may not do for you even though I am 'open to channel' you could say.. However....
Over-all, friendly staff that appreciate your custom, make you feel part of the family, clean and charming rooms and a great breakfast - including a full vegetarian breakfast. Ghost guests not guaranteed though.
We plan on returning here next year or whenever we're next in the area.
A very enjoyable stay - staff, food, service, quality, all really good.
