    We liked that you had a pillow menu.

    Restaurant was expensive and over priced for the quality of the meal. The room was not heated adequately, the window did not shut properly and the train line ran close to the hotel so I was awoken early!

    It's location, which gave us access to lots of different areas. A good mix of road types for meandering locally & A12 for going further afield. Easy to mix a town & country break.

    Nothing was a major problem, although there were a few minor niggles.

    The manager on site on Saturday evening and Sunday morning was very pleasant, friendly,smiling and welcoming. The breakfast was very good , as always. We have stayed her 3-4 times as we have friends who live nearby.

    This was the first time that we have stayed in a standard room. We stayed in a superior room before. We found the room to be fine (Room 201) but the bed was really small for 2 people. It was smaller than our standard double at home (which is 4ft6'). . Also even though you advertise on your pillows that there is a pillow menu which includes feather ones, when we asked for feather pillows we were told that you no longer do them!! So why put an advertisement tag on the pillows to say that you do? I queried this with the manager the next morning and he confirmed that the company had stopped providing feather pillows. Why? Why do you still advertise them????
