I say almost, because my room Florence was beautifully appointed, but bearing in mind this is a country house in the middle of beautiful countryside, my view was disappointingly of a huge bush ten feet from my window and a skip full of roofing debris.
Almost too because they couldn't accommodate me for dinner as I had only booked the day before (I was informed on booking). They did though share it with me as the smell of cooking food wafted through the first floor landing as I came out of my room. Really not very nice so In a way I was glad I had to jump into my car to drive 4 miles down the lanes to the White Lion for some fresh air.
It was annoying that the village had no hostelries though, and after 280 miles on the road that day, I had another 8 to drive to get my dinner. Only one pint so not really chilled!
Breakfast was really enjoyable. Fresh local produce, well cooked and presented.
Throughout my stay the owners did everything they could to ensure I enjoyed my stay.
I can really see that some guests would find everything "excellent" if they had the views and dinner. I didn't, so it fell short of top marks particularly as there was no wifi during my stay in any area of the hotel.More
