The experience made you feel that you were in a luxury home as a guest, not the normal 'hotel' experience, much nicer. The bathroom takes a bit of getting used to as it didn't have a door.
The building is a lovely old post house with 2 gardens, which are lovely for relaxing in. but we were very unhappy with almost everything about this very expensive and pretentious hotel. Our room was not up to the standard of most 3 star hotels. none of the following: luggage rack, robe hooks, lavatory roll holder, loo brush, soap dish in shower, towel rails, international electrical points, no mini bar, no dressing table, clothes-hanging rail of jacket length - not for dresses, bedside lights only (25 watt) too little to read by, and if switched off at bedside impossible to turn on light when entering room at door. Chicken wire in door-frame between lavatory and bedroom so no visual privacy, and smells penetrated room. 2x25 watt wall lights in bathroom not sufficient for shaving or make-up. Mirror to side of wash basin - bad for wet shaving. Second pillows supplied reluctantly. We shall be writing to the hotel chain
Staff very helpful
Location of hotel was good but that's about it. The hotel is over 30 years old and never refurbished. The toilet seats were once turquoise and repainted gold. The bathroom tile floor was dirty. Red velvet wallpaper and dark rooms. Hotel is overrated.
