Such a lovely setting but a Very tired looking hotel which was so disappointing. They had put a flower blossom on the bed when we arrived which I moved to a table and there it stayed all dried up until we left. They supplied tea and coffee in the rooms but we never got any milk. No serviettes and dirty cutlery at the breakfast table. Used serviettes lying under the tables. No bed turn down on our first night , did come and knock at 6:30 on the second night to see if we required our fire lit. Curtains in the bedrooms are were dirty. The outside patio and chairs had bird droppings all over and were not cleaned at all during our stay. Cigarette ends on the lawn and patio outside the dining room never cleaned up. Pool needs to be resurfaced certainly not up to 4 star hotel standards. I always remember people talking about how lovely Critchley Hackle was, well sadly that is no more.
