4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Liked the price - good value for money. Nice setting. Convenient for Park and Ride and Motorways. Beautifully decorated. Would be useful if they could do evening meals. Bar room/lounge area in old house was freezing cold in the evening and not conducive to staying there. Don't know why parking charged separately - might as well add it to room rate.

Staff all very friendly and helpful. What I did NOT like was being charged £2 for parking my car and having a £50 authorisation on my credit card for potential damage to room. Otherwise overall would have been rated excellent.
