I checked other reviews on this site after I made the booking and I admit to being quite worried as to what we would find. However, we were pleasantly surprised and had a really nice weekend. We stayed in the annexe. The room/en-suite was very clean, plenty of hot water, clean towels and thermostatic controls on the radiator. The bed was very comfortable. There were the usual amenities such as TV, Hairdryer, Tea & Coffee making facilities, although the iron/ironing board was missing and stuck to one of the lamps was a large 'do not use' sign. The staff were very polite and helpful. The decor was tired in places but hey, it's a period property !
The only real downside was there was a function going on into the early hours of Saturday morning, the bar was packed and the noise was very loud. This didn't really matter to us too much as we went out for drinks at 'The three cups' and 'The Greyhound' which are both only a couple of minutes walk (Beware the prices though - £8.50 for a pint and a glass of wine! Drinks were cheaper at the Grosvenor). The two waitresses really struggled at breakfast with the amount of guests and the service was quite poor..... However they more than made up for it with excellent service on the Sunday morning.
We booked through Old English Inns and we got what we paid for. We would definately stay again.
I would suggest if anyone wants a very quiet, relaxing weekend then they check with reception whether there are any functions on before they book.
