Stayed here on a Sunday night with my husband who was on business. When booking the room I asked for a dinner reservation but was told the restaurant was closed on a Sunday evening but bar snacks would be available. Thinking that bar food would be burgers and chips we explored the area for somewhere to eat. Most of the eateries we looked at also closed on a Sunday night so I telephoned the hotel and asked for their help in finding somewhere to eat. I am not sure of the receptionist's name (think it was Natalie) but bless her she came up with some Italian restaurants close by with full menus which were handed to us on arrival. This was extremely thoughtful of her and much appreciated. However once in our room my husband looked at the bar menu and said they had fillet steak, pork etc., and rang reception to ask if these would be available on the night. Yes they were so we stayed at the hotel and were not disappointed. They set up a table for us in the restaurant and we had fillet steak (my husband) and pork for me along with a bottle of wine which was excellent. Service was very good and food piping hot. The room was quite small but comfortable but the bathroom was huge with underfloor heating. Lots of space to put toilet bags etc. The only niggle, which we reported to reception was the sound of running water all night long - leading to a not very good night's sleep. Breakfast was adequate - fresh fruit, cereals, fruit juice and cooked breakfast to order. My husband's bacon was good but mine was so hard I couldn't cut it. No reason to complain though as there was more than enough on my husband's plate for the both of us. My husband went off to his appointment after breakfast and I had a lovely walk round the grounds - we were blessed with lovely sunshine. Then I read my book in the very comfortable lounge until my husband's return. Staff very attentive and efficient. Thanks you for a very enjoyable stay and we will certainly visit again when in the area.
