Sorry to say that we booked this Country House based on its 4 star rating. It was more of a very well-used 2 star hostel than a 4 star Country House (or 4 Star anything). Upon arrival it was obvious the property was not up to 3, much less 4 stars. The place is on the shabby side and badly in need of an update. Although clean, the bathroom was incredibly small and uncomfortable, the bed needed a new mattress, and it was well past time to replace the carpet and verticals (yes, verticals), etc., etc. Upon seeing our room, we immediately made other arrangements and left first thing in the AM after breakfast (which was fine). We sent an e-mail that AM, saying we wouldn't be back and received no reply. For some this might be a good option,(clean & decent breakfast), but we base our choices on the star rating, and these need to be revisited. Travelocity was good enough to refund us.

I must admit I do find this all slightly odd. We value feedback from guests but on this occasion just leaving without raising any issues with us means we do not have the opportunity to resolve any problems. since we moved in here we have had well over 100 people stay in the room you booked and had no complaints except that it can get a bit chillier in winter so i put in a bigger radiator and also provided a heater. I did respond to your email but you had blocked my response!!

OK for many people, but not us.

Pros: Breakfast fairly good. Parking good.
Cons: Toilet didn't flush unless I manually depressed float to bring level up. I reported it and I am sure they will fix it. Hot water takes a long time to
Smallish room, very small clearance between potty and shower. Mattress softish. Wifi slow when guests present. I guess most B&B are like this which is why I prefer more modern hotels if close to same price.
