The parking situation. This is insecure and a good walk from the premises with luggage as the entrance through the garden is closed. Also the inflexibilty of room access was dissapointing. We arrived at 12.30 for afternoon tea and checked in at reception prior to this. This went smoothly and , as expected our room was not immediately available and our bags were stored. After tea we checked on the room situation and it still was not available. The receptionist kindly took my phone number and called us after 2.30 to say the room was available. I think since we were on the premises some effort could have been made to accomodate early access to our room. However, overall we enjoyed our break and our loft room the Sandy Loan was very comfortable and the staff throughout the hotel and restaurant were friendly and efficient.

This is a great place with real high quality rooms, food and service. You pay a premium for this as it is expensive but worth it for special occasions. They also went the extra mile for dogs, with wonderful dog beds and rooms in an extension out the back with a garden area for sitting outside and also convenient for quick toilet trips. Dogs welcome throughout the hotel.
