A good stay, but could have been a bit better

Overall a good stay, just could have been a little bit better. We were in the main building and had a large bedroom and bathroom with loads of space. The bed was very comfortable and bathroom very clean. The towels were fairly thin and scratchy, not up to the standards of the rest of the room. We stayed for dinner and the food and service were very good. Drinks were very expensive, particularly after a service charge was added on checkout (supposed to be optional but hard to refuse when it's presented on your bill at checkout). Checkout was quite slow as a couple of people in front of us had problems with their bills. The £10 car park charge is pretty steep. We did manage to avoid it by parking in the road at the back.
