If I'd written this half way through my visit, I'd have given a full 5 stars. The meal we had Friday evening was excellent and the service just right. We woke Saturday morning refreshed and very positive.
Lovely old building, clean and the facilities good. I note some reviews complain about the maze of corridors, but my children thought it added something to their visit. It would have been helpful, however, if we'd have been told of the closer door to the room we could have used to bring the luggage in, rather than traipse through all the corridors and up and down the stairs. Thankfully I discovered this door before putting luggage back in my car.
From their website it was obvious they host weddings, and I expected to have some issues related to this. There was not too much noise from the wedding, apart from when some of the guests kept trying to keep the fire doors open. The language from some of them when they passed through the restaurant where we were eating on Saturday was not suitable for my children to hear; but I can't blame the hotel for that. The dinner on Saturday, perhaps because of waitresses and chefs being busy with the wedding, was not up to Fridays high standards, but was still fine.
I would happily return for a similar family weekend break in the future.
