At 2 o'clock the other half said we need to get away - by 3 we had booked an overnight stay at the Tillington - on arrival we had been given a twin instead of a double, but Meghan soon sorted it even allowing us to have a look at the alternative room - room 118 on the ground floor. The room was spacious, clean and value for money. The hotel has a restaurant and bar, however we fancied an Italian so we ventured into Stafford!!! to a local restaurant recommended by a local chap (funny thing was he spoke with an Italian accent!) will revue that later.
Back at the hotel - Meghan the superstar was on hand to replenish the complimentary tea making facilities.
After removing numerous fancy cushions from the bed - which did add to the ambience of the room Im pleased to report although on the ground floor the room was quiet and we slept like a couple of old logs.
Breakfast - served between 8:30 and 10 on a Sunday, and the departure time was 11, so no need to rush around excellent.
The breakfast was superb with a great choice - including Stafford's famous Old English sausages - old as in the recipe
The hotel, the staff and the breakfast exceed our expectations for what we paid for the night and would truly recommend it for a break - we will be back
Well done Meghan a credit to the establishment less
