stayed here on business (and have done so in the past at their sister hotel in the North East) they do create a medieval atmosphere and the feeling of a bygone age, its just a pity that the staff mostly dont seem aware of this, and behave, in my opinion, dis-interested and completely bored with their jobs....... Im not sure whether its because the hotel is large or whether the management transmit an arrogance, but staying in this style of hotel should be an experience not just an overnight B&B......... I ate both evenings in the restaurant and it was almost like I had shocked the staff who seemed totally surprised to see a person turn up to eat (as if it was the first night of opening)! The food was quite good, very expensive and the main courses the size of a starter but otherwise fine. However it did seem a little odd to be charged more for the soup from the table d`ote than from the a la carte, I asked why but no answer was forthcoming from the waitress and no-one follwed it up either by telephoning my room or at check-out.......... Breakfast was good but again no real welcome, just someone standing around waiting to be approached by guests rather than the other way around. I am dis-abled and the hotel only has one parking space which is very narrow and i could not park my car and get out of the vehicle because of the stone pillars on either side, there was a great space just to the right of this but was told it was reserved for the owners Mercedes........ I rest my case, and had to duly park some distance away in the car park field, I wasn`t even asked if i wanted to leave my bags before re-parking, quite amazing.......The girl on reception however was very efficient and asked if she could reserve a table in the restaurant and continued to explain everything required at check in. The room was fine a little dark but great comfortable bed and good TV.The only further point I would like to mention that upon returning after work on day 2 I called at reception to ask for my ker and to ask if they would again reserve a table for me for dinner, only to be told by a more mature lady who should infact know better that the restaurant was over to the right and they would deal with me............... quite apalling, especially since there was absolutely no one around in the resaturant . I know this is a small detail but one which determines whether along with the other points previously mentionedwhether I stay again or indeed recommend to friends.
