Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Lovely old historic property which has been decorated and furnished in an atmospheric style. Very comfortable 4-poster bed in our room. Walking guide (one of 5) was very well written and useful, got some amazing views from atop the nearby peak. The dinners were excellent and the wine choice extensive. Staff are very friendly and made us feel welcome. Very few negatives and only small improvements needed. Some staff training issues around restaurant service and housekeeping which were apologised for and didn't spoil our stay but for the price being charged we wouldn't have expected these little lapses to occur.
