The perfect date night/few days away.

Have been here before so though it was about time I left a review. Stayed here with my partner for a few days away in Aug (sorry for the salt), our first venture away from home since lockdown. We were slightly nervous about being away/out and about but couldn’t have been more reassured by the hotels attention to detail, safety and cleanliness. Lots of procedures in place to ensure distancing etc and safety (even having our temperature taken on arrival!). Restaurant/bar tables were well spaced and all staff seemed to know what they were doing to ensure guest safety.
The bedroom....well what can I say, WOW! a beautiful suite (unexpected!) with everything we could have needed. The bath was huge!!! Big enough for two but I won’t go into further detail there!.
Couldn’t fault any of the staff, from Jayne at reception to the restaurant/bar staff who’s names I can’t remember (blame the Moretti!!) The manager Paul even took the time to have a chat with us.
Shame we didn’t get a chance to use the leisure facilities but when looking around they did look clean and well organised. We had a game of snooker in the snooker room which was nice for a break (excuse the pun lol).
Food was superb. The black pudding scotch egg was amazing and my partner enjoyed his soft shell crab.... then we both had ribeye steaks which were cooked to perfection (med rare in my eyes is perfection!!). Second night we ate in the bar and had comfort food, burgers etc which were good value, quality and filling! The breakfast exceeded our expectations as was expecting a standard hotel buffet (apparently table service has been brought in for safety/distancing). Proper butcher quality bacon/sausage and eggs cooked to perfection. Struggled to finish our plates so the lack of buffet wasn’t an issue!
Thank you to Paul and the team, we will certainly be back! less
