Staying overnight at a hotel during these Covid times did not fill me with eager anticipation. I had heard from a good few people about very restrictive conditions in other places about England during Lockdown.
Arriving at the hotel to find that food and drink was available was an absolute bonus.
The car park is not the biggest but I was able to squeeze my vehicle in. I wasgiven a room in the annexe which was more than satisfactory. Nice and cosy nice comfy bed and with tea and coffee making facilities with biscuits.
I ate in the bar which had socially distanced tables about the place. Food was from the bar menu and my choice of Cumberland Sausage ring on mash peas and parsnip shavings was comfort food personified. I was able to order from the bar which again, I didn't think was permissable. All served by the one lady who worked non stop to provide all diners with their food and drink. The lady was in fact the manager working tirelessly to look after the guests.
A good night sleep followed. Breakfast was in the main dining room and was via table srvice. One of the nicest full English breakfasts I've had. Plenty of hot cofee, toast and preserves.
The hotel is a large place which because of the restrictions was strangely quiet, but all staff worked hard to make guests feel welcome.
