Disappointing and won’t return.
I was very disappointed with such a very dated, old fashioned room, far below my expectations. The bed was very uncomfortable and worn. The breakfast was of a decent standard. But most upsetting of all was finding some sort of insect scurrying across my clothes the next morning. I informed the receptionist and she said they would investigate. Whatever the insect was, it was definitely not a spider but something else??

Beautiful old building with lots of character right in the centre of Devises. Staff were amazing, helpful and very polite. Had a couple of issues due to problems with the building which were made tolerable by the kind, quick and thoughtfulness of the staff. Even with the issues would love to stay there again.
