We chose this hotel because it had been so highly recommended in guide books and we were not disappointed. Although our room was a bit small and simply furnished, the beds were comfortable and it was clean. We were surprised there weren't tea-making facilites in the room, but we soon found that we could have drinks on request. The two lounges were delightful, one with a fantastic library and the spacious dining room was very pleasant with a lovely conservatory. All our meals were delicious, but what made this visit so special was the friendliness of the staff and their obvious desire to make sure that we were happy.
We'd love to return.
