We stayed here for 2 nights - 30 June/01 July - on a Groupon deal. From the moment Carol booked us in, we were made to feel very relaxed and welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and she took time to tell us about the hotel's history, which we found very interesting.
Our room was adequate in size for our stay - plenty of storage made up for some lack of floor area (for bags etc) - and was pleasantly decorated. Yes, there are things which could be made better (a wonky toilet brush holder, a toilet seat which wouldn't stay up, some corners which could do with redecorating), but in no way do these things detract from the warmth and comfort of the hotel as a whole. A good sized en-suite and a beautifully powerful shower added to the comfort.
The gardens are beautifully kept and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
The meal we had on the first night (part of the deal) was excellent - very generous proportions well cooked and presented with choices to suit most tastes. We enjoyed it so much that we also had a meal on the second evening - considering the quality and quantity it was very reasonably priced. Likewise the breakfast was everything you could want.
All in all, a very well run hotel which we would have no hesitation in recommending, run extremely well by the lovely Carol & Keith who made our stay very special. We will certainly be returning.
