Exceptionally Friendly
Exceptionally Friendly. Breakfast acceptable. Nice setting, if a little isolated. Reasonably clean but wow Ive not seen furnishings or wall paper like this since the 1960s / 1970s. The TV took a while to warm up & luckily I had a magnifying glass so that I could see the very small screen, even though it was Scottish Channel 4

Only a couple of negative points to mention.....shower tray didn't drain very quickly, maybe blocked. And there was a fan going all day and night. And the second point, room was very dated. Needed updating in my view, certainly modern furniture would of made the room more attractive. Otherwise breakfast was nicely presented and bought out very hot to you. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Could do with lights at rear of property where parking is situated. Very dark and spooky as property is part of a golf course.

Relax here!
Lovely old house of Isambard Kingdom Brunel set in lovely tranquil surroundings. Plans to extend and renovate so hope it doesn't lose its slightly Fawlty Towers atmosphere! The Staff are great and the place comes well recommended.

Serene, picturesque piece of history
They don't make them like this anymore. Extremely pleasant, if a little beyond its prime, the service was incredibly friendly, the room was spacious and clean (if ...a little beyond it's prime), and the stay very pleasant.

Dissapointed in the cleanlliness of the room
Lovely grounds. Public rooms ok but lobby had a damp musty smell. We had the twin room no 2. Which was filthy with dated old worn furniture. Bedding didn't smell fresh and was paper thin. The carpet had an iron burn which had gone through to the floor boards - the waste paper bin had been placed on up of it to hide it. Windows were filthy. Radiator was filthy and as this was close to one of the beds you couldn't help but notice it when you got into bed. The bedside lamp and table were also filthy. Bathroom was acceptable although the lighting was low so difficult to see how clean it really was. Overall the standard of accommodation was unacceptable even for the reasonable price. Such a shame as the setting was lovely and we would loved to visit again but will not be doing so.

Our family room was in desperate need of a serious revamp and was not fit for paid for accommodation. There were damp patches on the walls, peeling paint, stained carpets and the toilet door did not close. Also we were without electricity during the night.

Business stay
I have not seen a higher grade Laterooms review and frankly, they deserve it. Fantastic value, great breakfast, beautiful setting and friendly hosts. Not surprised that there are a few negative comments because so many people want to be "different", and they are different to normal. The fact is this is amazing value package. I would have liked somewhere to sit with a desk / worksurface but have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Great location and friendly staff
Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, took care of ordering a taxi for us and even made a late breakfast for two of the group. Room was huge and clean, could do with a little bit of updating but can't complain for the price paid. Great value for money, and a good find. Would recommend.
