My husband and I went for a meal, not sure what to expect, to our delight the food was really tasty, the price was very good and the service excellent. A really enjoyable evening. The interior is cosy. We will defiantly be going back.

We stayed here for one night to break up a long drive. For that purpose the hotel is adequate, but it is an older hotel and could use some maintenance. The outside patio area was not well serviced, with tables being left uncleared and many cigarette butts littering the floor. We had prepaid our room but were asked on arriving... More

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and it was beautiful! The staff were friendly, the room and ensuite were perfect and clean, the bed was very comfortable, free wifi, tea and coffees making facilities, plenty of parking and easy to find. The food was very tasty...we enjoyed 2 breakfasts and an evening meal each. To top it all,... More

Visited here for the second time with family after having such a nice meal before, but left really disappointed. My fish and chips greatly resembled a frozen version and was very tasteless. My husband's burger was fatty and not good either. Such a shame as it is a lovely location, but needs some serious attention to the food that they... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel. As a small, family run hotel we are aware that we do not always offer all the facilities that the bigger company owned hotels do so it is important to me that the team try and provide the best customer service possible. Its great to hear that we were able... More

Could be so nice, with the park on your doorstep. Lots of new houses nearby, so no excuse now. Could be made into the hotel/bar/restaurant of the area. Currently the bar is just a tired "boozer". Someone please buy it and make it the place it should be!

Stayed here for one night as it was convenient to wedding venue. The room smelt very much of cigarette smoke, we went to reception & they immediately gave us a different room. We had room 303 which was not perfect but much more pleasant. Unfortunately at bedtime we discovered the mattress was rock hard, one bedside light was broken also... More

We recently stayed for a family wedding nearby. Location was ideal. Rooms were in a poor state of cleanliness, particularly bathrooms which had not been cleaned properly following previous guests departure e.g. used soap in shower, insufficient towels. In general the Hotel is in need of a complete refurbishment and modernisation programme. Staircase and corridors dirty, poor state of carpets,... More

Stayed for one night in July before a family wedding. There is a distinct smell of damp as you walk the corridors. The reception is tiny but does the job and the overall impression is a place in need to modernisation. The bar/restaurant has comfortable, big armchairs and the staff are very helpful and welcoming overall, although the lady in... More

The bed was like a plank of wood, The furniture was from the 30's. Dead flies and cobwebs to the windows. The grounds were like a rubbish tip. The fabric of the hotel looked neglected and generally the hotel looked as though it is about to be closed down and boarded up. Don't be fooled by the website photos. Staff... More
