I arrived fairly late. The receptionist was very helpful and phoned a local take away. All with a true desire to make the stay comfortable. Nothing to much trouble. Breakfast cooked to order and again very friendly waitresses. Great setting.

If you're looking for a 5star hotel then this one isn't for you. If you're looking for a small, well run hotel with friendly helpful staff at inexpensive price then this is for you. The location is good, near to motorway junction, with large grounds, great for the kids to run around and left off steam after long journey -... More

In a place where the traveller has little choice for an overnight stay it's nice to see this place not resting on its laurels. Nice and clean, decent bar and lovely food. The main plus for this place though are the staff. Everyone I encountered was really helpful and pleasant and couldn't do enough for you. The rooms are small... More

Booked through latetrooms, pleasant accommodation, great value and quality on dinner and breakfast. Staff particularly helpful - I had problems with access on my computer, which is not unusual, but without asking the lady on reception re-booted the system and got me up and running!

Booked at last minute and had a fabulous hotel stay. Lisa Liam and the rest of the staff were all very polite and helpful. Good pint of beer in the garden, it is hard to beleive that the motorway was behind the trees so relaxing and peaceful. Room are very clean and bathroom sparkled. The food was fantastic with a...

Having spent last weekend there and when there was a wedding party, the rooms were quiet and comfortable. The staff where very helpful and friendly, going the extra mile, although they were young they are very professional in their approach. Thank you.

Excellent staff providing friendly efficient service. Hotel itself is a little dated but is located in a lovely quiet setting, the facilities are good and room priced accordingly proving to be good value for money. Breakfast was served to order, well cooked and hearty. I will definitely stay here again when I visit the area again.

Firstly i have to say that the staff were lovely. Very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was lovely too. Now for the rooms... £85 for a double room isnt unreasonable but our room was nothing like the photos would lead you to believe. The room is tiny. The decor is very tired looking and in need of updating. The bathroom,... More

I visited here last weekend and was greeted with an unwelcome £30 charge to have an early check in fee. Nowhere did it mention you have to pay to check in 2 hours earlier than 2pm. The lady at the reception said that someone had tried to call us to let us know but it is totally unacceptable to TRY... More
