6 of us stayed the night in this gaff and were impressed with the warmth, size and great en suite facilities of the rooms. Also the real ale in the pub was top notch. However, when we walked into the "breakfast lounge" our expectations for a heartwarming start to the day were not met.
Firstly, nobody seemed to be present and we didn't know where to sit - eventually we found a free table with really old leather chairs which were hollow in the middle. It turned out you helped yourself to starters - but alas, no tea - just cold coffee. Also, the milk had run out.
After about 10 minutes a gentleman appeared and seemed hesistant to take any orders as one of our group had not come down from his room. We managed to order a pot of tea but had to wait ages. We then had to wait another long time for the milk as we didn't get chance to ask about this the first time round. We ordered 6 full breakfasts which to be honest, were not bad but disappointingly, served without any bread or toast. You were supposed to toast your own bread but as you may now have guessed, there was no bread in the "toasting" area. Sadly the breakfast guy had long since disappeared into the kitchen cloud - never to return.
When we got round to paying, we came across a nice youngish couple who had obviously left the breakfast duties to the "B" team - it wouldn't take much effort to improve on this and earn 5 stars from people like myself who may also leave future reviews.
