We needed a local hotel overnight as we had sold our house prior to moving abroad, and our furniture was shipped the day before completion. We know the Moorings well as a restaurant, but actually did not know it was a hotel as well. Really friendly staff, great evening meal, as usual, but the breakfast was amazing, sad we were... More

Stayed at the hotel overnight as I had business in the area. A lovely hotel I had a good size room which was extremely comfortable and very quiet. I had an evening meal and breakfast in the morning. The food was exceptional, the restaurant was busy for a Monday night and the service was very good. Everyone was very friendly... More

Arrived at 12 o'clock and the place was almost full. As we hadn't booked we were lucky to get a table but the friendly staff went out of their way and Soon had a table for two sorted. The other half went to the bar to order the food and drinks and then we had a wait of about 20... More

I have stayed here on a number of occasions and it is always so welcoming. The last time I stayed the owner met me in the car park and welcomed me and remembered my first name. When I went to the Bistro the Bar manager shook my hand and yet again remembered me by my first name. Food always excellent,rooms... More

Friendly staff. comfortable & spacious room. Safe car park which is locked at night. Superb food. Although on a main road it was very quiet at night. It is also very convenient to have a bar/restaurant on the site, especially one with such outstandingly good food.

Does what it says on the tin and then some! Clean comfortable room, very friendly helpful staff, good food well cooked, possibly the best breakfast I have eaten and that includes five star hotels, why would anyone want a buffet when your breakfast is cooked to order? Excellent value for money, those who have been disappointed have either been very... More

The rooms were clean and quiet enough but nothing special with regard to decor. A couple of strange things were that the tea/coffee making stuff was hidden away in a cupboard so we thought we didn't have any until someone in the bar told us to look there. Also, the way the bath has been put in means either sitting... More
