Our room was small and suitable only for a chauffeur, with a small window looking out over back walls. Following complaint, staff did move us to a nicer ground floor room looking into a hedge. At dinner, the bar and dining room appeared to be half full, but the maitre d' showed us to a small table in a dark corner, near the kitchen. Breakfast was so expensive we went elsewhere.
One young trainee overheard us talking when we aligthed at the stattion about a mile and ahalof from the hotel, and kindly offered to lead us to the hotel, saying that was here he worked. He could not have been more helpful, and we could not have found it on our own, as the trail led through lanes, paths, and churchyards.
