Have stayed here before and knew it needed updating but had read it was taken over by bespoke hotels and was in progress of being refurbished so decided to give it another try. We arrived and were given the keys to the Ecradour suite ( my spelling could bea little off here ) I thing they had over booked as this suite isn't on there website. The suite is at the very top of the building and was like walking into something from a horror movie. Cobwebs, thick layer of dust, peeling wallpaper, black mildew all over the bathroom and the crowning glory was when the taps came off in my hand, I really could have cried. I took myself down to reception and the front of house staff couldn't have been any more helpful, within minutes he had given us another room, although we had to settle for twin beds but so much better. Lovely big rooms but no sign of the microwave, cd player or free Internet mentioned on the website. Very comfy beds and spotless linen but I feel there housekeeping staff lets them down. Little things like stained grouting and dirty piping behind the toilet which would very easily be rectified with a little elbow grease and bleach. The front of house staff were all very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was very good, all good quality products. I would stay here again if I could specify I wanted a refurbished room.
