The hotel looks very nice as you drive in. Reception area is smart. Dining area clean and inviting and food - both dinner and breakfast was lovely. The staff that we met were very pleasant. Sadly we felt the whole experience was let down by the condition of our bedroom. Wallpaper was coming of the wall in several places. The... More

My wife and i were recommended the Smithaleigh for dinner by a friend. we decided to have Sunday lunch. A pleasing 3 course menu was presented us which left us scratching our heads on what to choose as it all looked so nice. I had pate and my wife had Mozerella wrapped in parma ham on roquette. Both great sized... More

A nice place but the rooms need some investment I think. The bed was comfortable enough but the cables for the TV could be tidied up rather than draped over the radiator. The shower head height adjuster needs attention in room 4 also as I moved it up before getting into the shower and quickly realised that it was back... More

Our Son and Daughter-in-law's wedding was held at the Smithaleigh Hotel on Easter Saturday and we couldn't have wished for a nicer venue! The attention to detail by Donna and her team was second to none and the staff were, without exception, really polite and friendly. The lovely gardens were a perfect backdrop for the photographs and the food was... More

We stayed 2 nights bed and breakfast but also used the restaurant for evening meals. The food was excellent and the staff could not have been more helpful. they even went to the trouble of insisting that they could provide... More
