Stayed here for two night as part of a group for my best friend's wedding - we had the whole place booked out. Absolutely fantastic stay - we were given room 7, on the second floor and overlooking the garden behind and countryside beyond. SUPER quiet spot - never heard a sound overnight.
Bed was very comfortable and the room was nice and spacious for the 2 of us. Lovely en-suite bathroom with nice modern shower and fixtures. Large, fluffy, soft towels for use too.
Room decor blended antique furniture with modern amenities: flat panel TV, upholstered easy chair, with matching upholstered headboard and seat cushion on small desk.
Breakfast was fantastic - lots of cereal choices and I ordered poached eggs both mornings. Eggs were perfect - almost orange yolks. Tea and toast fab - and they come and take your order; service very speedy.
One small downside for me - I never could get the WiFi to work. The signal was there but my phone wouldn't connect. I guess when you're in the countryside you should be relaxing but since I was visiting from the US my phone doesn't work on the mobile phone networks and so WiFi was the only way to stay somewhat connected. Certainly not a huge deal...but a bit of a challenge nonetheless.
All in all...an excellent stay. Lovely location, lovely building, lovely room. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone visiting the area.
