4/10 Fair

Room was small and dark and did not have king size bed as advertised. Lac of privacy as the window from another room faced ours. Nice grounds though.

10/10 Exceptional

Brilliant one night stay
Lovely great value stay. COVID precautions still in place so no personal contact or on site catering and some public areas closed, but good local alternatives well directed and really convenient to access city centre via bus, bike or walking (about hours walk through countryside/town on dedicated foot/cycle path). Direct path access to Cotton garden centre would help at present with breakfast. Room (house master bedroom) was amazing value and beautiful. Really helped be ready for workshop at the university next day.

Excellent place to stay
We managed to get a room last minute, the hotel response was great, we was allocated a ground floor room which was ideal. We would hope to stay again in the future.
