The staff at this old established abbey hotel are unfailingly polite and helpful but just sometimes things weren't up to scratch. We had to leave early and ordered breakfast but they did not produce any hot food until half an hour after opening so we had to make do with the cold buffet. The receipt for the rebooking said we had paid for dinner but it turned out we hadn't. (It was six months earlier so I could not remember without consulting bank account). Just a minor irritation.
The room was large and comfortable although needed some updating. The plum coloured bathroom ware was 1980s and the gold taps were long turned to dull brass. It ought to be possible to put in a lift in such a large hotel, a bit of a trek up with heavy bags.
The meal was excellent and well served. The food is good. The whole stay is quite expensive but typical of Relais & Chateaux.
