My daughter (14 months) and I stayed in 'Willoughby' for the weekend while visiting family in the area. Our stay could not have been nicer. From the moment we arrived we were both made to feel very welcome and every member of staff we met went out of their way to attend to us. The food and drink were all lovely and they did a great job catering for the little one (top tip if you go with a very little one - in the restaurant ask to sit at the chalkboard table - my baby can't quite handle paper and pens but she loved colouring right onto the table with chunky chalks).
The bar is comfortable and friendly, and the staff quick and attentive. Especially Sam on reception and Amber - who was an absolute godsend in the mornings when she entertained baby for a few moments so I could take a fews sips of hot coffee in peace.
Despite the possible aspersions cast by the room's name, it was perfectly charming, comfortable and quiet. The only downside (and I didn't mention this to the management who may have been able to remedy it), is that the room smelled a bit of chips as it is right above the kitchen and the windows were wide open because of the weather. There also isn't a shade in the bathroom so the room was rather bright in the mornings - though not a problem for us as my daughter is an early riser!
Both of the above are really very minor points and I only make them so that I don't sound too gushing! But really B & the D is very, very lovely. Not 'budget' but worth every penny. Can't wait for an excuse to visit the family and stay again!
