Dear AllyB103, Thank you for your lovely review following your return visit to celebrate your husbands 70th birthday. As you now know we have just opened three new bedrooms on the ground floor, which are all individual and each have their own style- decor etc, the only down side of room 3 is that we could not fit a window, (the light boxes are very clever though). So pleased that you found the room to be stylishly finished, we all look forward to your next visit later on in the year.( we wont allocate you room 3 again) ! Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
