This is our 4th trip to the Royal Mail with our family. It is always a nice stay. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was lovely but starting to show some signs of wear and tear. We would love it if there were 3 bedroom apartments as the house option is a bit too pricey for 1 family.
We were strongly encouraged to make a booking at the bistro when we booked our apartment which was ok but not really great for children. Our eldest two ate from the regular menu and our youngest couldn't find any good options so went hungry. The meal was fine but pretty pricey and fairly small serves so our older children were also hungry at the end after ordering a main and a dessert. Three courses each for a family of 5 at this bistro starts to add up!
We probably should have ate at the pub however on a Saturday night we were concerned it would be too busy and we were told the bistro would be good for a family.
It would be great if the bistro was a little more relaxed and family friendly and left the fine dining for the restaurant. In such a lovely rural setting I feel a more relaxed place to eat would be great as we are here to unwind. We have opportunity to go to formal restaurants in the city-in the country its nice to chill a bit.
The continental breakfast was nice however a cooked buffet breakfast is always popular particularly for hikers!
We will be back.
