I surprised my wife with one night stay here in March '14. It is a relatively large hotel which caters for many weddings etc.
On arrival we were informed we had been given a free upgrade from the 'Standard Double'. I presume this was to an 'Executive Double'. This said however the room (Room 9) was still relatively small. Probably a on a par with a standard double you would find in say a premier inn or equivalent. This may have been due to the age of that part of the building.
The public rooms we're beautiful. Very grand and decorated in dark wood it gave the hotel almost a 'medieval feel'. Unfortunately this was not carried over into the bedrooms. Not to say our room was not nice, it was still decorated to a high standard, but it was a shame to walk up the grand staircase with portraits and deep mahogany, only to enter a rather 'standard style' in the room.
The management very kindly included a fruit bowl with our upgrade, which was very much appreciated. We also enjoyed breakfast in bed and can recommend this greatly. Very nice including the Stowaway Black pudding.
Room Cost: £104 (via Amoma.com)
Cost of two Gin & Tonics: £16
