I stayed at the hall last saturday with my wife for a little treat. As a lot of people have said it is a lovely building in very nice surroundings. Checked in ok and was shown to the room. We had a second floor room looking out over the gardens. The weather wasn't very nice and the windows being originals made sure the room was cold when we arrived but a quick call to reception and they turned it on and it warmed up well. As the building is very old the floorboards were very sqeaky underfoot. I hope below us couldn't hear us, the whole bedroom was like it. There is no mirror other than a small retractable one in the bathroom and a mirror on the back of the wardrobe door. Not good for ladies doing make up and hair. There isn't any imformation about the hotel in the rooms either like breakfast times, bar opening etc.
We went downstairs for drinks before dinner and the service was prompt although one or two others had to wait a while as the bar was not attended full time, nothing major though we thought but these weren't impressed. We had to order our food in the bar and then was led through when they were ready for us. On there website they have a as they call it a strict dress code for men being a dinner jacket, well there was one or two people who didn't. The food itself was good but not brilliant this was my main gripe, paying £12 for a starter, £24 for a main and £9 for a desert i except brilliant food which i didn't get. Iv'e eaten this standard at nearly half these prices elswhere. You are probably paying for the Hall as well but i feel it was steep. One other thing is the staff are very helpful but a little too much at times, they kept asking can i top your wine up or your water, maybe there expected to be like this and some people will expect it but i would rather just be left alone a little more. Otherwise a very enjoyable stay.
