Fantastic hotel amazing scenery

Have stayed at Royal Mail periodically over the past 18 years. Love the scenic outlook. Rooms comfortable but a bit tied. Dining at Parkers an amazing experience. Staff excellent. Can't wait to return.

Brilliant stay for w/end away.

Pros: The service, amenities and ambience were perfect.
Cons: Nothing
From the fine dining on the Friday night at Parker street Project, to the lovely stay in the stone cottage, it was just a beautiful experience all round! Would recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful Food. Room disappointing.

Pros: food
Cons: Secure doors, phones in room.
Thoroughly enjoyed the food. Staff were good, room was disappointing. I didn't like being across the road, down an alley with glass doors that wobbled in the wind without a phone in the room too. Didn't feel safe and secure.
