Very good 8.0
Consistenly good
Second time staying here having enjoyed it so much a coupel of years ago. Was in one of the external rooms rather than the main house which are decent enough if a little odd. Get more light let in through the shutters and the blind on the door than you would through a normal room. The blind also seemed ineffective at keeping in heat so you have to turn it on more than expected, though it was very cold outside when we stayed.

Amazing
I highly recommend this Hotel. Only minor issue we had was the double beds in the basic room are really small and the pillows are uncomfortable. Other than that, an amazing stay.

We came for one night and we had a lovely stay. We feel this is a great location. Our experience was excellent from start to finish. I would recommend a hideaway room with some outdoor space.

Good 6.0
Overpriced for the standard delivered.
The room was big and the bed was very comfortable. However, the decor was tired and, because our room was above the kitchen, the smell of fish drifted through the window and and noise of dishwashers etc was quite loud. There was unnecessary use of plastic - such as a strange "sanitised for your protection" strip on the toilet seat cover and plastic drinking cups wrapped in more plastic. What's wrong with a glass? The food was fine but there wasn't any fresh fruit available at breakfast, only tinned fruit, which was disappointing. I would say the hotel is overpriced for the standard delivered.
