    We stayed in the ground floor executed room . When taking a shower and due to the open end, the mat and floor became very wet. I felt worried about the slippery floor due to a health condition. I did report the problem with shower room. I was assured they will look into it. But other than this it would have been the perfect stay.

    Lovely property, very clean and comfortable. Only drawback is that the traffic outside can get heavy. I would definitely stay here again!!!

    I will stay there again.

    This was just a single night because I was visiting a relative. I stayed in Room %. It over looks the road out of Willington towards the A38, Despite this, I did not notice much traffic noise. The bed was comfortable and large. The shower room is large and the shower is a pleasure to use. The shower room over looks a yard at the back, a yard that leads to a private dining room. There is limited car parking at the back of the hotel. There was an awning covering part of the yard which takes away parking spaces. There is additional parking at the Dragon pub/restaurant which is where you eat breakfast. The breakfast was good. Sadly, no fried bread this time. Parking at the Dragon can be difficult because the Dragon is extremely popular. Overall I like the Cottage and I will stay there again.
