I arrived here this afternoon an hour before the due time for my room to be available. However I was told it was ready and I was welcome to check in. This was a great help as I'd had a long journey and a long day already. I was also offered breakfast at a reduced price and also a discount for spa treatments. I decided to book a couple during my stay. I was offered help with my luggage which I declined. However being offered was a pleasant surprise.
My room is fabulous, Large spacious, soothing, relaxing colours and double shower.
A friend arrived to meet for a cuppa and she was shown a lovely spot and the was brought with homemade shortbread. Alison was exceptionally helpful. I felt dismayed at some of the negative reviews of the dower house so although I have another couple of days here I felt it was important to write a solid, honest appropriate review. I feel truly blessed to be here in these relaxing surrounding with the gym and spa area to chill in as well.
I think this hotel so far offers, a good value for money, very pleasant town hotel, with good facilities and added extras, helpful and welcoming staff. Still not the most state of the art, nor traditional. It somewhere in between and does what it says it will do and a bit more. That is very good by my realistic perspective.
I would love to try dinner in the dining room and hopefully I will get an opportunity before I depart and I will add a review of that too. less
