We booked one night in a Standard Double Room at The Stone House Hotel based on reviews and photographs. We arrived to see the beautiful exterior and received a warm welcome. Unfortunately, we were then extremely disappointed to be allocated a very small room (which, in comparison to the others on the website, we would describe as a box room) with a 4'6" bed (No. 16). A 5' bed would not have fitted as the two bedside tables alongside the bed completely filled the width between the room walls. Although the bathroom fitments appeared new, the decoration of the room was quite inferior, with wallpaper coming adrift.
In addition, the room appeared to be above the hotel kitchen from which there was noise and voices until 11.00pm and then again from 7.00am.
On the plus side, breakfast in the dining room was served with smiles and was of very good quality.
Unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to voice our disappointment as we were anticipating the usual 'We hope you enjoyed your stay? / Was everything ok for you?' on our departure.
The £135 charge for room and breakfast was, we feel, very high for the standard of this room. As we said, very disappointing.
