The staff are very welcoming, and my room was really lovely, with two low chandeliers on either side of the bed, and the furniture had the appearance and feel of old oak.
The bed was large and comfortable and clean, and I loved the brown patterned bed cover. There are some very good nautical inspired paintings and reproductions in the room and on the landings.
The en-suite shower and bath was very adequate with magnifying shaving mirror and non-slip Bath matt. There is even an iron and an ironing board provided and stored in the wardrobe.
What was particularly good was the provision of tea, coffee, and hot chocolate with milk and sugar of course, in the room. This is something British Hotels often provide. in other parts of Europe and the world, this very welcome facility is often not provided in the room.
The Bar and Restaurant are excellent, and my evening meal from the set menu and specials menu was excellent. Prawn Cocktail and Hunter's Chicken, with a large glass of Red Shiraz. Service was fast and attentive, without being over intrusive.
Breakfast is excellent. The very real English breakfast certainly is, with generous portions on a large plate with accompanying toast of White or Brown and coffee and orange juice.
The free Cloud Wi-Fi worked very well too.
