We stayed here based on reviews by other trip advisors... Wanted to just get away but have comfort.. Weren't disappointed!
The hotel is decorated and furnished to a high modern standard.. As it's near Christmas, the decorations were up and they too were tastefully done.
We stated on first floor, the room was very large, high ceiling, beautiful bedding, curtains, all Excellant textures, quality materials. The bathroom followed in the same style, quality, tasteful modern style, large bath with fantastic power shower.
Enough power points in th from too, something which drives me daft is not having a socket close to a mirror in a room, to blow dry my hair! No shortage of sockets! Room and bathroom was immaculately clean too!
We stayed for dinner on the first night and booked for 8pm...just after booking in and booking the restaurant the reception called to say the chef had said would we like to eat early or later than 8pm at all, as there was a large Christmas party coming in to eat at 8pm and he felt we may experience a delay in our food, so wanted to give us option of eating at a different time so we wouldn't be disappointed in service! We did change time.. But felt this was brilliant of them to think ahead! The food was utterly delicious and presented like the hotel, in a modern way, quality produce used! Delicious! The waiting staff were brilliant, nothing too much trouble!
Breakfast next morning was a comfortable relaxed affair, again good choice, brilliant service and food delicious!
We really enjoyed our stay here, from the outside it looks like an old fashioned pub if I'm honest.. But inside, it's a classy, modern, comfortable, hospitable, friendly hotel/bistro/bar..... I'd definitely stay again!!
