Had a two night stay recently which was booked by our son in Australia so were not sure what to expect. The hotel itself is a lovely old building set about half a mile up a very pot holed driveway. Had dinner in the restaurant both nights and the food was excellent. The menu is fairly small but was changed... More

1 night was just not enough to fully wind down in this lovely,quiet, friendly country hotel. Our room - Birch, (all the rooms are named after trees) was comfortable, with a very impressive view of the Park like vista found to the rear of the building. The free Wifi in the room was an added bonus. We both enjoyed our... More

Our one night stay was far too short. The building oozed charm and history. The dated furniture was a total irrelevance in the face of outstanding customer service and a first class dining experience. Lashings of hot water made bathing a delight after a day's walking. A stroll along the riverside took us to the boundary with Ellisland Farm, home... More

Stayed here as a deal from my mum for our wedding anniversary with our 2 dogs. Rooms are a little dated but clean and for one night more than adequate. Service was exceptional and the food in the resturant was first class. Really enjoyable. Lovely grounds and staff were exceptional - highly recommended. We will return!

Fantastic service from all the staff and great organising from the events team who organised the wedding we were at. Food was excellent topped with a full Scottish breakfast in the morning. My wife and I are planning to return later in the year for a longer break at this charming hotel. Highly recommended

I am stuck between 3 stars and 4 but have given it 3 because although the staff are really friendly and helpful there were just a few things that could maybe be better. We came for a 2 night stay as we found a good deal on the internet. Everything is old school but I don't mind that. There's nothing... More

Stayed here last night as a family of four and our dog. Staff were pleasant and extremely helpful. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. (£19.95 for 2 courses). Throughly enjoyed our stay here. Would definitely visit again and recommend to anyone.
