7.0 Good
Pros: The room was very comfortable with an excellent en suite with bath (swamp room). The breakfast was very good. We appreciated the great selection of teas and coffees as well as biscuits.
Cons: The welcome was brusque - felt we were spoken to like children. We didn’t need the ‘lecture’ on how to complete the breakfast tick list, nor indeed a stern warning about losing the room key. We are excellent guests (as can be seen on our feedback on air bnb). This was disappointing given our expectation from the letter we received on booking our stay, which emphasises the need for guests to be sociable!
