Visited this place for the first time on Saturday! And what a beautiful place it is! Although, I think afternoon tea if overpriced for not a lot of savoury options available and that many puddings... but, everything tasted amazing and drinks were well priced too.

The hotel it's self looks very clean and looked after. My room a "superior single" was not what I would class as superior. The walls were dusty and the wall paper looked a bit worse for wear. The whole room could have done with a good dust tonne honest. I was very disappointed by the size of the room, there...

We came to the Earl Last year to see an Abba tribute, and enjoyed it so much we returned with our friends this year. The staff and service were exceptional. I really couldn't fault them. The food service was timed to perfection. Food tasted lovely too! My only suggestions for improvement would be to provide extra gravy and custard in...

I have marked this average, but it was better than this, although not quite very good. It is a quirky place, with a bit of a blingy, Art Deco feel. The rooms were good and staff very friendly and helpful. It advertises a gym, which is one reason I booked, but it turns out this is t on site and...
