Today my partner & I popped into the hotel for a coffee, tea & toasted tea cake. The coffee & tea was lovely but I don't recommend the toasted teacake. It wasn't very toasted, it was cold, the butter in a small dish seemed frozen as it was rock hard & wouldn't spread. The jam

Dear Airwick99 The message refers for the number of rooms booked, not the room number. All of our rooms are lovely but different from each other. Should you have any special requirements, however, please do contact the hotel to speak to a member of our team so that we can make sure all the details of your stay are just right for you. Kind regards, Peter
