A couple of things didn't go according to plan. This started with us having thought we'd booked into the main house, but being shown to a room in another building. After raising this, we were offered a room in the main house, but were too tired after a long day to move again. So that's our choice and the room itself was fine, just less character than the main house. The next morning we woke up to no hot water, necessitating a walk across a car park to use another room - a bit of an issue with a flight to catch!
However, sometimes these things happen and it's how people respond that's at least important. And I was more than satisfied with both the explanation of what had happened, the waiving of our restaurant bill and a return stay.
And the dinner in the restaurant and drinks after were top quality - highly recommended.
So we will certainly be coming back again.

Our experience was of being graciously hosted in a small hotel over a Restaurant. Our room was comfortable with dual aspect Windows one of which was needing some attention. The ensuite was extremely small as you might find in a small house and I suggested to the owner that a couple more hooks would have been more helpful in the circumstances. Our overwhelming memory, however, will be of going to breakfast In the restaurant ( approached by going down the outside metal staircase) and being greeted by the 'host' and an array of pristine white tablecloths and napkins beautifully folded. It felt like entering a top class restaurant for a special meal. The choice of a freshly cooked breakfast to order was excellent and on the first morning we opted for the smoked salmon and scramble led eggs served elegantly and with style! The next morning before our journey we enjoyed a ' full English' and one of us had the vegetarian equivalent which was very appreciated.
What Hamiltons lacks, compared to entrance foyers, bars and lounges, it makes up for in the quality of its hospitality. I think it's own description of ' boutique' sums it up well and we would certainly return.
No parking facilities at the hotel but we were fortunate as we could use the supermarket nearby as we we stayed on Saturday evening. Room was clean but quite small as it was at the very top of the building. TV did not work at first but this was sorted with a metal coat hanger. Breakfast was very good indeed. Price was higher than expected but this was likely due to rugby world cup games.
Only booked a one night stay at thie hotel because it was convenient to location of school reunion. Staff were ultra helpful and courteous. Installations are old, but spotless and it was nice to stay in a place with character rather than an anonymous chain hotel.
Will definitely book again if I happen to be in the area.
