    Disappointed

    Rooms nicely decorated and quiet. The restaurant looks lovely and dinner was delicious with a very attentive staff. Now for the cons: advertising some rooms as having a private courtyard but there is no direct access to it from the room, you share it with several other rooms and it is in full view of the restaurant entrance and its garden(full of customers) so no privacy whatsoever.Big signs in rooms indicating they had deep cleaned them as per Government guidelines, that is not true. Dust everywhere: lamp on desk, coffee tray,etc. Small make-up mirror on desk covered in smudged marks and when opening the hardback folder containing hotel information we found a used blue face mask crunched up inside, upon calling reception about it someone came removed said mask with their bare hands, barely uttered a sorry, and left the same folder. Despite featuring as a 4.5 stars hotel, there is no safe in the room to keep valuables and no minibar. The bathroom is minuscule.

    Very pleasant and comfortable stay

    We stayed one night in a Design Double Room, which was in a newly built separate annex next to the pub. It was nicely decorated and furnished. The room name was "Walter" and inside were interesting photos with explanations related to Walter Guinness, 1st Baron Moyne. Bed was comfy. The room was quiet. En-suite was compact but functional and the water for the shower was nice and hot. Due to Covid measures, there was no breakfast (which we knew about beforehand, both from the Hotels.com web site and also from a prior message sent to us from the hotel staff). We did not eat in the pub's restaurant, but we did have a drink in the pleasant surroundings of the bar area in very comfy armchairs. efficient table service - no ordering at the bar. The car park is massive and there is 1 charging point for an electric car. There is a lot of seating outside and also a good looking children's play area.
