This is a lovely period property with plenty of charm, but it simply does not live up to the price tag. The room was nicely furnished with a four poster bed, but the noise of the TV from the room above was an irritation, as was the phone in our room which did not work.
The biggest disappointment by far however was the restaraunt which promises top class cuisine (and at £45 a head it should do!) but actually delivered massively bland, ordinary food. Presentation was poor, both the duck and the halibut were overcooked and we, along with several other diners had to send our food back.
By all means choose Riber Hall to stay at as a pleasant location and a place with history, but don't eat there and certainly don't expect 5 star service or facilities. There is far better in the vicinity at this price.
