Completely different generation to me as well as different outlook on life generally, therefore a negative write up on the decor by the Telegraph is almost a positive as far as I'm concerned. I think what the reviewer wants is a hotel full of antiques that feels like someone's house rather than a hotel - Downton Abbey fantasy, basically. No thanks. The fact they are complimentary about the quality of the finish is very good.

I am staying tomorrow so will try to report back as much as I can. Have a suite in the main house booked.
