Thank you for your comments relating to your most recent stay. I am disappointed to hear that the first room you checked into, didn't meet your requirements - and these comments have been passed onto our Housekeeping Team for further investigation and correction. I am, however, delighted that our team were able to quickly move your rooms and even upgrade you to ensure your stay was a pleasant one. I apologise that you was disappointed with your stay, and can understand that an old Victorian hunting lodge in an historic building, may not suit everyone
