Ancient buildings with lovely views.
This is not a modern steel and glass building. It is an ancient historical complex of halls and suites that has kept the ambience without descending into cliche. Simple dining room in large hall with few tables. Placid and quiet. The breakfast, which is all we had at the hotel during the day, was just what one would expect. Pleasing service and tasty, cooked to order menu.
The high point for me and my daughter was coffee and dessert (rich brownies with delicious ice cream) seated in the lounge, which is a wonderful oak panelled great room. Wonderful way to end the day of exploring Telford and surrounds!
The bar overlooks a small body of water, replete with ducks and geese. We sat on the deck and watched the spring ritual unfolding.
The staff seem efficient and co-operative, but weren't fawning; willing to help when asked. Nothing more you could ask for really.
We loved out stay in this beautiful area of England, and I know we will go back if the opportunity presents.
Telford area is associated with the Arthurian legends, and offers some self-tours of landmarks of that period. Worth seeing. The people in the small towns are remarkably friendly, and quick to join a conversation about their particular area. Truly one of the friendliest places I have ever been.
