Myself and my husband stayed here for a night just before Christmas as a treat for his 30th birthday. We'd seen it on Four in a bed and always liked the sound of the Premier Room, and we know the new owners are refurbishing the rooms and getting rid of some of the themes so we wanted to stay there before we missed our chance. The room was lovely, the cinema screen was great (with amazingly comfortable reclining seats!) and we really enjoyed our stay despite the few problems we had. Unfortunately, the hot tub was not working properly, and we only managed to get in for half an hour before the temperature got too cold and we couldn't use it anymore for the rest of the stay. We phoned twice to try and get it sorted and they did try to help but it didn't work. This was a real disappointment for us as this was one of the main reasons we booked this room. To be fair to them, we did receive a discount on the cost because of this. I have to say, the shower was another disappointment as all the bells and whistles were extremely complicated, the steam thing did not seem to work at all, just squirt cold water at your feet - not ideal! Also the water drained very slowly which meant you couldn't stay in long without having a flood on your hands. However, despite all of this, I have to say, it was a lovely stay. All the staff we dealt with were extremely friendly and polite, the room and the bathroom were beautifully done, and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Breakfast also was delicious. I would recommend this b&b for special occasions, we really enjoyed ourselves.
