Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Beautiful period property with nice big room with en-suite. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The food was exceptional - much better than your normal pub fair with very extensive breakfast options. I will be using this hotel again on my next visit, no question.

Breakfast good, but room quality varies
I was put into room 9, out the back, through the kitchen access area. Access is looking very tired. The wall-mounted room heater did not work, but they had a convector heater. The water dribbled out of the basin tap and the basin plug did not stop the water so I had to wait 2 minutes to get a bowl of warm water to wash in. I didn't attempt to use the shower. One night was enough! That said, breakfast was good, but at over £82 for B&B it's not the quality I'd expect.

There must be better hotels in the area
It was a bit of a shocking experience. The room was dated and not thoroughly cleaned (I have some pictures to prove). The carpet was full of stains and the wall above the bed was very filthy. There was also a big crack on the washing basin in the bathroom. There was noise just outside thoughout the early hours of the monring just below the room (from 3am onwards) which left us awake for most of the night. The breakfast was good but it was served cold after waiting on the counter for a while to be served. We mentioned that to the reception. One of the staff offered us 2 drinks on the house and took down my bank details to send me a refund as a gesture of appreciation of the experience that we went through. Of course, that never happened. I followed it up a few times and in the end they wouldn't answer the phone nor respond to my emails. Overall, it was not a good experience for the price they were charging. I'm also disappointed that the staff did not respond to my calls and emails and did not honour the promise of a refund. This is the first time that this happens to us after so many years of using
