First of all, the service was brilliant. We were there for a family member's wedding and everything was spot-on. The restaurant food was the best!!
However, when we got to our room (the Cressage room) we were most disappointed. The bath was a bit dirty. The TV didn't work. There was no full length mirror (there was one further down the hall which I had to use). There was no shower cap. Generally just horribly dated rooms. I looked in two other rooms which my family members were staying in. One of them being the Coalport. Improvements had been attempted to try and bring the rooms up to date, such as chandeliers/lamps - but they were tacky and did not fit in with the rest of the dated furniture in the room. Our room was also quite small. It was £100 a night and I would say that it was worth less than half of that.
It was definitely the Cressage room we stayed in but I have just been on their website to discover their photo of the Cressage room shows a different room.
The breakfast was good and was included in the room price. On offer were things such as full English, or Continental.. eggs with smoked salmon/kippers. A friend had the smoked salmon which was a very small portion so I'm glad I had the full English!
You will need a car during your stay due to the location - it has free parking though. There are goats in the field next to the hotel which is cool if you are with a family. There is also a rooster which rises early!
