Excellent Stay
We had a lovely stay here, the hotel is in a fantastic setting and is well kept and very clean throughout. What really stood out to us was the service which was excellent from start to finish and could not be faulted. Breakfast was fantastic with a wide choice. They also had gluten free bread which was appreciated. If I were to be very picky I would say that the wooden furniture in our room (wardrobe, desk and bedside tables) was looking a little tired and getting ready for renewal. By contrast the bathroom looked pretty much brand new so the hotel are clearly working their way through and I'm sure the furniture is on the list! We would stay here again in a heartbeat and hope to be back soon.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The first night we were faced with several big flys in the room. The were lifeless, which indicates they had been in the room for quiet some time. I am 8 weeks pregnant and due to the trains being delayed we missed dinner by 10mins, my partner explained this to the staff there, however they did not care to offer anything they had. All online takeouts were not delivering which meant I went to bed on an empty stomach. They could have offered fruit or whatever they had but instead we were turnt away. The pictures on the Expedia app Are very deceiving, the hotel is very tired and for £200 a stay I expected more. Our bed was two single mattresses combined to make a double which was very uncomfortable. Overall I feel very disappointed and let down.
