We had dinner their and it was spectacular. So was a bit disappointed when we went down for the Continental breakfast and the coffee was like dishwater and my partner had some fruit on his weetbix and the apricots tasted as if they were about to go off. But apart from that our stay was wonderful. P.S. could do with re grouting around the spa was a bit mouldy and needing redoing.

Overall the hotel was very average. Room we got was very noisy and being an old building there was no double glazing.

High quality attention to detail in the building's restoration. I didn't have much interaction with the staff but the few occasions I did they were helpful and friendly. Only downside was my bed was too soft. Overall a great experience.

This is an amazing hotel to stay in if you want a classy old world experience. We absolutely loved it. Only thing I could complain about is there was a writers festival on the weekend we were there, this was fine but hard to get a seat in the lounge area to drink amazing cocktails in front of the fire. We sat in the green lounge which was really nice as well just a bit cold as the fire wasn’t going.
