    Happy Place

    The hotel building is old but full of character - the extensive refurbishment has been done sympathetically and the result is in perfect keeping with today. There is even a modern light sensor when you visit the bathroom at night! We loved our room and the hotel in general. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. The reception staff are efficient and helpful the restaurant and bar staff attentive. We all know there is a shortage of hotel staff but there was no obvious signs of strain, just happy friendly welcoming staff .

  • 8.0.Very good

    Hotel and staff excellent. Room could do better

    Lovely hotel . Staff very friendly and attentive. Room nice but would have appreciated being told that there were two steps down to the bathroom and one up! I was afraid of falling down them in the night and fortunately l had a torch. I was disappointed that there was no rail in the shower or non slip mat. As it was I couldn’t use it anyway as the plug was blocked and vI was in danger of causing a flood. I also couldn’t understand why such heavy duvets were on the bed when summer was not yet over and found myself getting too hotel the night. Why not provide a light duvet and spare blankets? We enjoyed a lovely evening meal and breakfast could not be faulted

    Excellent!

    Fantastic hotel that I will certainly return to! Beautiful decor, excellent Sunday roast, great products in the room. Loved it! The only downside is the noise of the road if you are in a front room so worth requesting a back room.

    Cultural and Diversity Needed

    The stay was very conveniently located near amenities. However i feel that the Hotel wpuld benefit from cultural and diversity training. When I dined there for lunch, i particularly spoke to the waitress before ordering that we are muslim and can not have any uHalal food. The conversation went on for 5-10 minutes, where i explained what halal was and what we could and could not have. I then ordered a scallop starter, which i went through of how I would like it. When the meal came, it was well presented with some odd dried leaf like food. There was 3 leaves on. I tried one and it was very crispy.. when i looked again at it - i was curious of what it would be. I asked the waitress and she got the chef to confirn that it was some pieces of parma ham. The waitress said that she had spoke to the kitchen and told them of my requests and apologised.. I stated that have meat that is not halal is really bad for a Muslim.. And that having any type of meT from a pig could NEVER be halal.. This really effected my stay there and I am SHOCKED and SURPRISED that the Hotel manager has not contacted me to check how I am and what they can learn from this. Please be aware this sitution could easily be a kosher, vegan, food allergy situation, etc. I hope they do contact me.. I drove all the way up from the North to see the South.. Haven't gone home happy..
