What can I say? Where do I start? On arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady named Julie, very polite, friendly, yet very professional. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. We were shown to a room in the courtyard which was really lovely, warm, nicely decorated and with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. We had a large flat screen television and a drinks tray with decaffeinated coffee (something I struggle with in other hotels). We had lovely views from the room and a newspaper was delivered to our door every morning.
We had intended to just have an evening meal on the first night but because the food was so fantastic, we dined the second night also. The hotel has been awarded a rosette for food and boy am I not surprised, I felt as if I was eating in a top quality London Restaurant, the taste, quality and presentation was next to none. They have little pots which they serve little extra’s in, such as Lamb Casserole to accompany your Rump of Lamb, along with a Black Pudding Sausage Roll. The desserts were just too tempting for us to pick just one, so they have a dish where you can try all of them (smaller portions obviously). They have a promotion on at the moment where if you buy a dessert, you get to play Deal or No Deal, I picked a box and won a lottery ticket for the coming Saturday night, sadly I didn’t win.
The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much bother, they are very polite and make sure you have everything you need to make your stay lovely.
I would like to thank all the Management and staff for a wonderful two day break, we will definitely be returning in the near future
