The room and bathroom were fine: clean, functional, reasonable size, comfortable bed. It was pleasant to be met with biscuits upon arrival to our room. The dining room is over the top Victoriana, and charming. The breakfast selection wasn't as comprehensive as other places we stayed, (You could have an English breakfast, OR a croissant, for example.), but we worked it out: My husband had his customary juice and cereal, and ordered an omelet. I ordered a croissant, and ate his omelet, which was excellent. The breakfast window was very short, at only 45 minutes, too short, though we managed to get down in time. The owner Paul tried to be extremely helpful, giving us brochures with half off coupons. His directions, while well intentioned, weren't entirely clear, but we did manage to find our way to the Avon canal, which is a lovely walk to town. It actually took us much longer than advertised, as my husband was fascinated by the locks, and stopped to help one of the houseboats operate one of the locks. Even without that, I doubt that we could have made it in less than half an hour. If I could have found a place closer to town for a comparable price, I might do that instead.
