We arrived with our friends on Saturday afternoon, and after finding our way to the car park, which is hidden behind the hotel, we made our way to reception. Check in was fine, and they were helpful when we found out that breakfast was not included in the stay I'd booked (my fault).
We enjoyed afternoon tea, and found the staff very helpful.
The hotel is old, but very well kept, and the rooms are lovely. We would have liked rooms closer to our friends, and the walk upstairs to the third floor was a bit of a trek, but the room was worth it. We did have trouble closing the windows in our room, but was dealt with by a man with a mallet.
Breakfast was fine, although you should know that when you order bacon, you get one rasher, unless you ask for more. I suppose you get spoiled with buffet breakfasts, when you help yourself.
My wife and friends were not keen on the coffee served (both for the afternoon tea and breakfast), but were told by Jane (the manager) we should ask for the coffee from the machine in the bar, which was better.
After a day out at Southwell races, and Workhouse (both worth a visit). We had a nice meal on Easter Sunday evening.
On the whole a very pleasant stay at a lovely old hotel, with great staff. We'd definitely recommend, and look forward to another visit, hopefully over New Year. less
