Stayed here on business and got Room 18 which is a "standard" room. Standard rooms are on the 2nd floor and were, I suspect, the old servants' quarters. The room was very pleasant and comfortable. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided and there are plently of sockets for charging phone, laptop etc. The heating is powerful and easily controlled by the radiator thermostat. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows and a nice thick duvet.
Less good for me were the very cramped bathroom, well appointed but you have to sit at an angle on the loo because of the location of the sink. A bit more shelf space would also be appreciated. Also, the table provided is not too good for using a laptop being more of a dressing table than desk and the TV is not in a great location for viewing comfortably.
Back to the positives, the food is good, there is an a la carte menu and also a more basic bar food menu. I had the bar food and it was good quality. But, on the down side hot breakfast is not served until the chef turns in at 8am. So, if you are on business like me and need to be out on the road by 8am, it's coffee, toast & cereal only.
Staff were excellent and friendly, made me feel very welcome.
This is the kind of hotel that has a number of regular visitors, some of whom I met on my stay. If staying on holoiday, I would probably give this 5*, but the cramped bathroom and 8am hot breakfast mean that I have to knock 1* off.
In summary, a very characterful hotel in lovely surroundings that would be great for a holiday. Some of the more expensive rooms are very well appointed and spacious.
