10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic rooms and food
The staff were amazingly friendly and efficient. We had just finished the Jurassic 100km walk and they were very apologetic that the rooms were upstairs but offered to take anything we needed up to the rooms. The parking on site is first come first served and tight but we managed to get our Hilux truck in there. I would definitely use it again as the food was also spot on.

Don't use restaurant, there are better nearby
We stayed for 3 nights in a Superior Double Room which was amazing. We were shown to the room by a friendly receptionist but not told that the radiators and towel rail were switched off so had to crawl on the floor when it got cold. Given the age of the building we were surprised that the Fire Door outside our room was jammed open! We had dinner on the first night as they had as their signature dish Fillet of Plaice and we like fish. It was due to be served with Hollandaise sauce but when it arrived the sauce was covering the black skin side of the fish which seemed unusual. We then discovered it still had the white skin intact and wondered how they filleted this fish but of course they had not! What made it worse was when the helpful but untrained waitress began telling us that this was a fillet!!!!! She consulted someone in the kitchen added that perhaps they might revise their description! We ate out for the following two days! We were not expecting much of breakfast although the menu seemed good. Unusually there was no reference to Fruit Juice, Toast or Croissants! We later found that all were on offer if you presumed to ask! I ordered Porridge with Bananas, Blueberries, Greek Yoghurt and Honey but no Blueberries of Greek Yoghurt were on my plate so I assumed I should have chosen which I wanted. Next day I ordered the same and everything came up. I was offered croissants on the 2nd day and then requested them on the 3rd but none came. Something is wrong here!!
