5/5 Excellent

From the moment we arrive to the moment we left the experience was fantastic. The room was fine, the breakfast setting was excellent, we had lunch peacock alley which again was excellent, along with a Sunday lunch at Grazing which for someone who would rarely have a roast dinner would say it was of the highest quality. Would stop again without quwstion.

Well-located historical building. But the interiors—carpets, furniture, mattress, toilet fixtures—badly need renovation.
