The first room we were given smelled strongly of paint, but a phone call to reception was met with a courteous and speedy response and we were soon ensconced in a similar, but smell-free,room. Having small(ish) appetites, we opted for the so-called market menu and found that we had ample choice and were given two excellent amuses bouches to start the meal. The food was imaginative and well presented but it was the service that impressed us more. There was frequent use of our names to emphasise the personal touch and all the staff were pleasant and efficient. The wine list was comprehensive and moderately priced. Breakfast was freshly prepared and of good quality. All in all this was an enjoyable stay in a traditional country town hotel. Warmly recommended.
