We stayed for only one evening and received a very friendly and warm welcome by the Scottish chap on reception. We were able to store our bicycles in their 'wee' shed.
Our room was large, clean with a comfortable bed, bath/shower and toilet, television and tea & coffee making facilities. It was a Sunday evening so the hotel was very quiet. Our room backed on to the pebbly car park - of which there are plenty of parking spaces - which I had concerns about with perhaps noisy people coming and going during the late/early hours and the sound of the cars on the gravel but as it was so quite we had none of that and the curtains had a good lining which made us think it was earlier than it was - I thought it was the middle of the night, however it was around 8am.
Breakfast was good, the usual cereals etc., plus cooked breakfasts. I had avocado on a toasted muffin with poached eggs.
We stayed on a Sunday night which for a special price included an evening meal and a bottle of wine. The starter and dessert were well presented and tasty but the main course, roast pork and roast beef were a little disappointing. The vegetables were hard and the meat could have done with being slowly cooked as they were a bit tough. The roast potatoes and Yorkshire pudding were fine. The service was very good throughout the whole hotel, very warm and friendly.
The location is very good, in the countryside which is very nice. We rode over to Daylesford Organic Farm and back and although a little hilly we saw some lovely scenery.
We wouldn't hesitate on staying here again if we were in the area. less
