Stayed on a business basis with my partner our room and board was paid for by a host company. First impressions at reception looked good but really there were two ladies on reception who tried to be efficient but failed... We were booked in a single room? That was quickly rectified but it was a bit embarrassing. We were shown to our room but no information was given ref breakfast etc.
The drinks here are very expensive and the bar is very small, there was a large group of us and it took a very long time to get served 2 x 175ml wine 1 x malt and 1 x gin and tonic £22.00....
The breakfast if you want a full english is £17.50 per head.. Vastly over priced. 2 poached eggs, 2 bacon one mushroom 3 slices of a new potato and half a tomato!!!! My partner travels all over the UK and Europe on company business and he really was shocked at the cost of breakfast. It looked nice on the plate but nevertheless way over priced.
Now the room... Very clean and some lovely touches with the robes and slippers etc. However its far more important to have hot water in the shower. I had to run the shower for 20 minutes to get it luke warm. They must have problems with the plumbing as the noises it was making through the night was quite loud.
Finally we went to check out and there was no internet or phones so we had to pay with cash for our extras....
Overall a lovely building with very clean rooms and some lovely touches in the rooms.
