The price of drinks in the bar. Long wait for breakfast however it was busy.
The hotel was excellent. Peaceful and enjoyable walks and grounds. Beautiful place.
Nice big bed and a good shower. Location quiet and close to the hills
All was good
Set in beautiful grounds. Breakfast was fine.
Stayed in a pebble dashed annex next to a derelict building 100 metres from main hotel building. As the only guests not in the wedding party made us feel like an inconvenience. Felt pressured to make quick decision for a dinner reservation so when we decided to go into town to eat, there was a reluctance to open the bar for us on our return. On checking out was given an invoice for more than the agreed price so I was kept waiting while receptionist worked out how to reduce our bill.
Shabby Edwardian country house converted to hotel. Prettily set in its own quiet park with the fast-flowing river close to the front of the house. Room well made up.
My room was carelessly converted and poorly thought-out, with cheap DIY type fittings. It was a 'single' room, with a double bed, which took up too much space. There was no room for the chair in front of the desk, which covered the wall-light switch. A bit bonkers. The bathroom was on the wrong side, half obscuring the window. A wasted opportunity, really. After waiting thirty-five minutes at breakfast, I intercepted the waitress to ask for tea, and placed my order for eggs. Most of the buffet was empty by then.
