GUEST REVIEWS

Just to thank you all for the wonderful, friendly and efficient service we received when we stayed with you. The experience of staying in a converted Pullman carriage together with the delightful afternoon tea we had on arrival and the lovely breakfast we ate this morning (and both were delicious) made for a memorable stay.  In these difficult surreal times it is "the art of making things possible" that truly makes a difference to people and the team at The Old Railway Station have achieved this and more.
