We booked a two day mid week break at the 'special' price of £85 per person per night for dinner bed and breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet rural location about a mile or so from Ludlow. The furnishings and general ambience are a little dated but the hotel is clean and the staff friendly and efficient. Our room was on the small side, as was the adjoining en suite bathroom and the furnishing was dated and pretty basic. There was no comfortable chair or sofa, so if you wanted to relax in the room to read or watch the (very small) TV you had to perch on the end of the bed or sit on the one upright dining style chair that was in the room. We found the bed rather hard and unforgiving. We thought we had been unlucky in our room allocation but during our stay we saw two more rooms and they were similarly furnished and smaller than ours. The food is good but not exceptional and the wine and bar drinks are very expensive. The cheapest house wine was £20 a bottle (£22 with the service charge). When we left we were surprised to see a discretionary 10% service charge added to our bill for the 'inclusive' dinner and the wine and bar bill. With just one pre dinner drink and a bottle of house wine it adds over £23 to the bill for a two night break. Tipping is a personal matter and it should be left to the guest to decide who they wish to tip and how much. Adding a discretionary service charge smacks of sharp practice and I wonder how much of it ends up in the pockets of staff. We would not stay here again.
