I chose the word hidden because it really is. I stayed here with my boyfriend who had a complete pa-lava trying to find it even with a sat nav. I don't advise going there in the dark! Make sure you're prepared to search!
Anyway, the place itself was very nice inside. The staff were friendly and very professional, especially the waitress in the restaurant.
As previous reviews have stated, it is a "pub" with an up market restaurant and some rooms completely separate from the building itself. It's not your usual hotel, just somewhere to stay over night.
We stayed in Moet & Chandon No.10 which is the first room on the left. I picked this as it was cheapest and I preferred it to the other rooms. I was pretty impressed by the size of it. There was plenty of room, though the bathroom wasn't huge and there is no bath. There are two dressing gowns and two Japanese style robes. There is a large TV with Sky freeview channels and a DVD player.
In our fridge/top drawer were orange juice, milk, a small selection of cereal, biscuits, fruit and 2 pastrys. This was our breakfast, which is included. I was told a full English breakfast is served in the restuarant but it would cost an extra £10 PP, so I passed. The breakfast in our room actually satisfied me enough and I wasn't too bothered about the small choice, though do be aware that for a 'proper' breakfast you have to pay extra. We were also left a small bottle of champagne & 3 chocolates.
We had dinner in the restaurant, the service was a little slow but that's my only complaint. The waitress was extremely professional and the food was lovely. On a Saturday night you can only eat off the A La Carte menu and there isn't a great deal of choice, especially if you are vegetarian. Luckily I found something on there, though I was hoping to pick from the Gastro menu which was a shame.
It was very quiet for a Saturday evening, though the restaurant was fully booked all night, we didn't see anyone walking around and didn't hear anyone at all once in our room.
Overall a pretty good stay with only a few slight problems. I would suggest ignoring the previous reviews if you stay in Room 10 as it didn't need any work doing to it at all.
