    Overall nice stay

    Room was very nice and clean. The bed was far too high and mattress topper was too big for mattress so made bed slightly uncomfortable, room was also too hot although a fan was provided it was rather noisy. Bathroom had a smell of dampness and hadn’t been upgraded to the same standard as the rest of the room. Breakfast was lovely but had to pay extra for it which was expensive for what you got. We ate in the restaurant and the food was exquisite and all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Only downside was a dog was allowed in the restaurant, when you are allergic to dogs and paying a significant amount for the meal it did tarnish the experience slightly.

    Perfect stopover in lovely location

    On arrival parking was plentiful with multiple electric charging points. Checkin was easy and friendly, however, we were extremely disappointed to be told that there were no bookings available for dinner especially as we had driven 7.5 hrs to arrive and quiet tired and hungry. We were taken to our room (garden room) which was clean, pleasant and bright with an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower. Bathroom products were very high quality, however, a little niggle for me was that they were wall mounted in the wrong places so difficult to use such as the shampoo was wall mounted by the sink and not in the shower. Mini bar was well stocked and not extortionate on prices with complimentary tea coffee, water and a chocolate bar. The hotel use nesspresso machines for the coffee but mine was faulty. I can’t really complain about this as if they didn’t know they can’t fix it. Surprisingly we received a call from the dinning room to say that they had redesigned their seating to fit us in as long as we don’t mind sitting close to the door. We agreed and had a fantastic 3 course dinner with drinks for just under £120. Overall, a great stay and I would recommend to others.
