This is a beautiful hotel located in an old school. We arrived at 1.30pm only to be told because the days wedding takes priority the room wouldn't be ready until 4pm so we went for a walk around Dalton in Furnace, came back an hour later to have a drink in the beautiful gardens only to find the bar staff & receptionist watching the wedding, no one to serve us drinks although we waited 20 minutes so we went to the Red Lion just down the road & enjoyed a few drinks in their beer garden until our room was ready at 4pm. The bedroom itself was extremely small but we were on a Travelzoo deal so understand we wouldn't be given the more expensive rooms unless we upgraded. The evening meal was ok but nothing to get excited about, the second night we ate at the Brown Cow which was very good. When we came to pay the bill I was shocked to be charged for bottles of wine that we hadn't had, when I challenged this the receptionist said very matter of fact "this happens all the time," I would recommend everyone to check their bill thoroughly. This is a beautiful looking hotel & it's a shame I have to give negative feedback but it's important to review a hotel as you see it.
