Stayed here with the girls for a fun weekend away. We stayed in the New York and Premiere rooms. The New York room is more of an apartment than a room with a living room/kitchen, bedroom an bathroom. (I could live there quite happily!) you access the room via a authentic loft experience with cage (filled with cleaning products) and grafitti to your apartment door, greeted by cityscape wallpapers. Highlights of the New York apartment, plenty of space, the bed is fantastic, huge and very comfortable and the i-rider, mini bucking bronco provided lots of laughs.
Our friends stayed in the premiere room which is located in the garden, like a little chalet. The theme of this room is cinema, so the room comes complete with huge cinema type screen with curtains and reclining leather chairs and your own pop corn maker. Despite being more exensive than the New York room it is much smaller with just the bedroom and bathroom, however you do get your very own hot tub outside. Only one of the group were brave enough to try in the freezing weather conditions but it did look fab and had good reports from the brave soul trying it out.
Cool toiletries, mini L'Occitane, good provision of tea,coffe etc in room.
We did not stay for dinner as restaurant was fully booked, dining room lloked nice located in conservatory at rear of property, we did have breakfast there in the morning, which was nice however service was a little slow and surly. Nice to see a veggie breakfast on offer Well done for that!
To sum up a great experience for something a bit different. We got a good deal on late booking, could not afford to pay rack rate. Pub couple of doors down, The Dun Cow, very nice friendly tradirional with good food and drink.
Would like to take my partner in the summer.
Give it a try, if you like something different.
