Amazing place - superb staff above all!
Absolutely wonderful weekend away. So many positives - perfect location, the town was literally downstairs, staff were just wonderful and bent over backwards to accommodate our needs. They were also amazingly lovely with my 4 year old. Food was divine! We ate downstairs in the pub in the first night and enjoyed it so much we returned the next night. The breakfast was super, one of the best full English breakfasts we’ve had. The room was well decorated, huge tv, spacious, had Netflix, Wi-Fi, plenty of storage and a welcome tray. Nothing was too much for the staff. The bed wasn’t too comfy though, but this was minor compared to everything else. We had an absolutely wonderful weekend and chose to come back early from our trips out so we could make the most of the comfort in the room and hotel.
