I will get the grumble out of the way first...my satnav put me on the wrong street using the hotel postcode!
The hotel is superb, I travel a lot and this is very much in the higher ranks of quality and value. The hotel was booked with a bed & breakfast package and I was expecting the room and the food to be a bit "budget"...this was very much not the case.
The room (in the courtyard) was huge and very well furnished, everything about it was clean, well presented and very comfortable.
The food is in a league of its own, this place really works hard to provide top quality food and it does it well, the portions are just right and the service is spot-on without being in your face, this has to be one of the few places in the UK that actually understands and delivers a Bleu steak. The menu is interesting without being "up itself" and the food is well presented. Breakfast is an event in itself, I had the Full Scottish one morning and the quantity and quality rendered me useless for several hours....superb, but massive. Other mornings I had poached haddock for breakfast and my request posed no problems and a beautifully cooked piece of fish was delivered...its making me hungry just thinking of it.
In summary, a great hotel with super staff, discrete yet very helpful. The food is worth the trip alone...I will return!
