Stayed here 3 nights in a superior room with the summer offer. Loved it. Room was spacious as was the bathroom. Kettle in room and more than ample supply of teabags, coffee, hot chocolate and packets of biscuits. The food was superb. The Yorkshire breakfast was cooked to perfection and the fruit compote was delicious. The evening meals were superb...
