Two day getaway

Jan B, Sunderland, United Kingdom
Visited here 19/7 - were given a nice room - ground floor as requested - some of the furniture looked well used but room was very comfortable - lovely comfy large bed. Nice toiletries in the bathroom & a lovely bowl of fresh fruit in the room plus the usual tea/coffee making facilities. Asked if we could have the taster menu that night & I also had the wine taster to go with the food. I have just noticed that two of the courses are not as stated on their website, course 4 & 6 the fish & main meat course. We had tuna & white ginger for the fish course & lamb 2 ways for the meat course, unfortunately my husband had already had this at lunch time. I also found the red wine chosen for this course, a Cotes du Rhone, was for me personally too heavy to go with lamb it may well have been better suited to the braised beef cheek that is advertised. The other wines were very nice & the port with the cheese was fab. None the less the food was delicious & very well presented, service was excellent even though the waiter did put his finger on my food during explanation of the fish course !!

Although it is a bit out of the way it makes up with excellent food and rooms well served with 'Free goodies'. Lovely spa bath!!!!!. Has a lovely warm feeling. Did not experience the observatory but is an added bonus if you do.

Friendly staff and a very pleasant stay

Spent 1 night here on a dinner/ bed and breakfast basis. The staff (nearly all Eastern Europeans) were superb- especially Denisa, who greeted us, checked us out- and in between ran the bar and numerous other jobs! Very eco-friendly hotel with lovely extras such as a bowl of fruit and home-made biscuits in our room. Dinner was excellent, with a full choice and no extras for steaks etc that you often find. The hotel has made an obvious effort to go somewhat upmarket- and it works! Thanks for a lovely stay!
