Arrived in the morning for a friends wedding and was impressed from the outset by the building and the setting. Sat through a marvellous wedding celebration which from the ceremony to the early hours of the morning was handled by courteous and professional staff of various ages, highlights of which were the synchronised waitresses serving the wedding lunch and Brian the master of ceremonies to mention but a couple. Spent some time in The Stables bar/restaurant to sample some of their home brewed ales (nice by the way) and retired to a perfectly lovely room, not large but nicely done,immaculately presented and in keeping with the building. Yes, if your a whinger the tv is a little small ( but then i didnt book into a hotel to watch tv) and if you like a ton of fluffy pillows there arent, but what was there i found sufficient and you could whinge if your stupid, that you got into trouble for smoking in a hotel that has ample signage informing you that it is a non smoking hotel. Bear in mind that this hotel does hold a lot of functions (for obvious reasons) which can mean activity until thevearly hours, and that the building was never meant to be a hotel so the addition of bathrooms to the bedrooms means that they are a bit more invasive than that in a modern building. Take what you will from this review but my family and I do not begrudge a single penny we spent this weekend and will visit again. Thanks to all that made for a perfect stay.
