This hotel is in a charming village. Our stay was very pleasing, from the good DB&B package price, to the comfortable beds, good variety of well cooked food and staff attitude. The hotel appeared to be very busy, particularly in the restaurant, most of the time, but service and friendliness didn't suffer. In fact I think Chris must have wings on his shoes!
All the staff we encountered from the Chefs, waiting staff and receptionists had a friendly "can do" approach.
Our room was clean and comfortable if not luxurious, mind you it didn't claim to be. The beds were very comfortable, something that cannot be said for many hotel beds! The plumbing was a little "iffy" as the shower pressure was weak and the toilet flush needed a little encouragement, but these points didn't affect out comfort. Maybe some of the problem is because it is annex accommodation?
Our only negative comment would be that the bar arrangement is a little strange. There is a rather small seating area within sight of the actual bar and other than that there is a "lounge" which is completely separate and you have to cross reception to get to it. This rather impacts on atmosphere. These points may well not be of importance to many guests, but as a couple who like to relax with a few drinks after dinner, we felt the arrangement missed out a bit. Of course the age and nature of the building probably impact on what can be done.
Overall a very enjoyable stay and we wouldn't hesitate to use this hotel again if in the area. Thank you! less
