    Not a good experience.

    I must have stayed in another Hotel as I booked based on reviews and it wasn't good. Toilet not clean I have attached image, when I showered in the morning the floor was wet so I used a towel to dry the floor to avoid slipping! after doing this the white towel was filthy again image attached. Put simply this place is not clean. I was in room 7 directly below the kitchen back door which was so noisy between 10:30 - 11:00pm as staff were finishing there shift. I decided to leave before breakfast as I felt it was worth missing.

    Brilliant place to stay!

    Stunning location, attentive staff and the food was amazing. Will definitely be back but as a pleasure trip rather than business. Couldn’t fault it at all.

    Great stay

    All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Room was very clean but a bit tight on space. Bathroom and shower were good size. Menu bit limited in the evening but breakfast was plentiful.

    Beautiful old property, sympathetically decorated to meet expectations. Staff extremely attentive when required, never overly fussing, great balance to allow you to enjoy your quality time. Breakfast outstanding and just about every ingredient locally sourced and high quality. Being fussy, the hash browns could be brought into that fold and be made in house to finalise the best breakfast experience.
