We arrived in here for a 1 night stay on Easter Monday. I had previously booked over the phone with Michael who is more than accommodating and helpful. We had 4 rooms booked. We turned up to glorious sunshine, a very easy check in and we were shown to the Bowes – Lyon suite…..
We then met family outside to enjoy the sun and ciders!
Aylestone is a gorgeous old stone and brick property. Michael and Jo the new owners are excellent hosts! Nothing is too much trouble and they are very friendly in their approach to guests. The evening meal we had was faultless and for the ones who had it, the hot chocolate cup was apparently “to die for”! We had an excellent evening in the bar area, all to ourselves as it turned out.
Our suite was very grand, the bed is especially comfortable. The complimentary lemon drizzle cake is VERY good!
Breakfast is cooked to order and as fresh and clean as they come.
We then had a family wake on the Tuesday, and the food was again faultless.
The new hosts deserve to do well and to get the good name back to such a wonderful old building. If you want modern, sharp angles and blue led lighting this is not the place for you.
If you want a comfortable relaxing and friendly place to stay, then you should try here.
We will all return again!
