This trip was booked by my Husband as a suprise for my Birthday, on a bed & breakfast basis, and although very pleasant, it was just that, pleasant, nothing fanc.
We were given a free upgrade on arrival to room 3, which overlooked the river; the view was stunning when looking outside, however I was disappointed with the quality of the furnishings; I expected old with it being a Georgian House, but it was more old in wear and tear than in date of the period.
There was no shower in the en-suite only a bath, which had hairs in it, and the sink had toothpaste on the tap, the toilet roll holder fell to pieces everytime you touched it, bedding was clean and fresh though.
Breakfast was served in the main dining room which was cold and had no atmosphere, we were the only guests eating and there was no background music, all a bit too quiet; breakfast was of a decent quality, we opted out of dining in the evening as not only did we feel the menu lacked choice but it was expensive, and to be honest we didnt want to sit in a cold room all alone.
Cant fault the staff as they were all very courtious and helpful.
