My husband and I stayed for a couple of nights at the beginning of December and really enjoyed our stay. The decor of the hotel and rooms are beautiful - stylish and full of character but also cosy and conducive to relaxing. The cream tea on arrival and a drink in the evening by the open fire were especially nice.
The staff throughout the hotel were without exception fantastic and we appreciated the high level of service which was professional but also genuine and relaxed.
The gallery restaurant is stunning and my evening meal was of an excellent standard as was the wine but two out of three of my husband's courses were not up to the same level unfortunately which was disappointing hence why I've marked them 4 stars. However, the waiter dealt with this faultlessly. Breakfast was very good.
I did find the hotel stay to be expensive and a little noisy due to the creakiness of it being an old building and the swing shut room doors but overall would definitely recommend a stay here.
