The location of this hotel is excellent for those who enjoy exploring the local area and wildlife.
There is a warm and welcoming atmosphere as soon as you arrive and the staff are attentive without being overbearing. At the time of booking, I requested that the hotel arranged for a small cupcake with a candle to be brought to our dinner table as a surprise for my husband's 50th birthday and that the table be decorated. Unfortunately they were not able to do either which was a little disappointing.
The food was of a very good standard although by no means "fine dining" however the steak ordered was perfecly cooked as requested. Choice was excellent and use of local ingredients was pleasing. In particular the breakfast offering is extensive and the full English was nicely cooked.
The room we stayed in (17)was well appointed beautifully clean and the large double bed was decked with good quality linen. The bathroom again beautifully clean could benefit from underfloor heating and double glazing as the ceramic floor tiles are incredibly cold underfoot in winter! The walk in shower looks stylish but drains too slowly and threatens to flood the whole room in less than a couple of minutes.
Overhead noise was an issue. Did not appreciate being woken by what sounded like people moving around upstairs in shoes before 6am and the sound of water thundering down as the shower was running.(when raised this issue was told that this was surprising as sound proofing measures had been taken - obviously such measures were inadequate)
Internet access in the room is not reliable - signal only strong enough near reception.
Overall a good hotel,would return provided no overhead room. Would recommend.
