Booked a surprise 2 night stay for my partners birthday in one of the four poster £185 per night room. On arrival was show to a room with NO four poster tiny double bed dust and cobwebs everywhere, it was disgusting and extremely disappointed. They offer us a drink on the house for our disappointment and informed me there was no other rooms available. We got moved on the second night to what should have been for 2 nights to a four poster which was a lot better. They still charged me the full amount for our “VERY DUSTY COBWEB ROOM- VERY DISAPPOINTING first night. We will NOT ever be going back there again.

We were very disappointed to learn after the last couple of days that there was a corporate priced menu for breakfast and the continental breakfast was exactly the same as the menu we were offered, but we were paying double the price. On the first two days there were no croissants left, so on the second day I waited 15 minutes for fresh ones to be baked which arrived burnt.. I would really appreciate your feed back on these points and would point out that our breakfast for the five days cost approximately £48 more for exactly the same thing.

Both friends and I booked thru Expedia at basically the same time. Their room was large and beautifully furnished with a bay window facing a castle. Ours was in an addition thru several doors and up the stairs. It was small with a window looking over the dumpsters outside the kitchen. Light over sink was out so lighting was poor. I actually booked first but was given the inferior room. Would have liked something similar with some of the charm that made me choose this property.
