Dear Dolly S, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am truly sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience with us. Your review however stands out from the vast majority on here and from the feedback from guests we get every day so I'm am unaware of why your experience seems so different to everyone else (including the review before yours?!). Also, that you didn't actually dine with us, just breakfast? Sorry it obviously wasn't for you. Simon J Cotton General Manager

Dear gillian314, Thank you for your kind and constructive review following your recent stay with us. I'm delighted you had such a great stay overall and appreciate your detail about the issues you had with breakfast and for the polite and professional way you have fed this back. We did experience some issues on Sunday morning and it appears we were far from our best however please be assured this was very much an isolated incident and has been addressed swiftly and I have every faith you will see considerable improvements in the breakfast on your next visit. In the meantime, please accept my apologies for these shortcomings. Until the next time, my thanks once again. Simon J Cotton General Manager
