I visited with my boyfriend for the May bank holiday and was really looking forward to a romantic and relaxing weekend away. Sadly the hotel really did not live up to expectations and i have to agree with most of the reviews here that it's overpriced and that they give a misleading image of themselves. The bathroom had hairs in it when we checked in and our double room was tiny. They don't show you exact pictures of the double room so my decision was based on the pictures of the very lovely (and much more expensive) large double rooms. All they show you are pictures of the bed and table detail so it's hard to determine exactly how big the room is and what is in it. I'm lucky we didn't get given the basement room which is only communicated that that might be possible AFTER a non-refundable booking has been made. Everything seemed very crammed in. They also charged us for an espresso at breakfast which i thought was unreasonable. It's also very noisy - sound travels up the stairs from the restaurant and if there are people in the garden you can hear everything they say too! Every morning we were woken up with the smell of frying bacon in the room and we were on the top floor. I thought at the time the hotel had just been repainted as all the walls were bare and there was a significant absence of any welcoming touches such as flowers but going on the reviews below it looks like it's like this all the time. Needless to say I won't be booking this hotel again
