We were actually transferred to another property in the Doma Group - Burbury - as the Brassey was closed due to severe storm damage. The change was made seamlessly by the Brassey staff. The first we knew was after they had already made all the arrangements for us. That's what I call excellent service!

Comfortable beds and lovely only complaint is the Murdoch media throughout the hotel. I’m boycotting the climate denying Murdoch media. An improvement would be to remove The Daily Telegraph, The Australian and Vogue who are owned by Murdoch.
