"The food was excellent.  There was a good choice at breakfast.  The food was plentiful, hot, well presented and delicious. The evening meal was also of a high standard. Again, there was a great choice on the set menu. The steak was cooked just as I liked it.  The chips were to die for and the pudding heavenly."

This room was formerly the Library, in the days of Adelina Patti - see  below 100 years ago.

It was the office of her second Husband, Nicolini, hence its name - the Nicolini Room.

It had fallen into disrepair as a little used bar area

We found floors and ceiling were rotten so it had a major overhaul and rebuild.
