Stayed two nights on business. Old fashioned room but comfortable with all amenities required, including bath robe and tea and coffee facilities. Much of the hotel dated, but new and modern bar/bistro area. Breakfast in the dining room good with quick and efficient service. Reception good and helpful. Didn't eat here in the evenings so can't comment on the main... More

As maid of honour it fell on me to find the perfect venue for the hen do & host a perfect event! With the help of the spa I was able to do this with ease. I was able to decorate the function room that we had all to ourselves for our afternoon tea making it that little bit more... More

The staff at this delightful hotel did everything to make our stay comfortable and memorable. The receptionists, Rahsina and Sonia greeted us warmly and processed our booking as we would have wished. Heeding the warning of an earlier reviewer we requested a room far removed from discos and wedding celebrations, and our request was met. Room 101 on the first... More

I recently arranged a spa day with my friends, it included a massage and afternoon tea. The afternoon tea was very good, could have done with more sandwiches but very nice. The cakes were beautiful and there was plenty of tea and coffee. The staff were very attentive. We all had a facial too and I do think that I... More

Visited with 4 friends for afternoon tea & would recommend it! We chose to have it in the Orangery which was lovely & bright & comfortable. The sandwiches were fresh & very tasty with a good selection, the scones were warm & very light & the selection of little cakes were delicious & just the right size. A good selection... More

I have just had an amazing Guinot hydrothermie facial which has left me feeling ultra relaxed. My skin feels smooth, hydrated and rejuvenated. A rare feeling for me! I was given the facial by a superb therapist, Kat; she was polite, friendly and extremely skilled when administering the products and using the specialist equipment. I would definitely recommend this treatment.

It's like staying in a Old peoples home! Decor is very dated and haggard. No welcome as you checked in! the card machine didn't work & the staff thought that was hilarious - apparently it's been faulty for months. Breakfast £14, quality of breakfast worth £2, walk down the road and get full for £4. Won't be staying again, already... More

Olde Worlde antique charm ... but with contemporary chic spliced in, giving a really unique feel and trans-generational appeal. I'm there now, and feel as if I really got lucky, as I'm going to an event today, and tried without success to find a B&B nearer to the venue. However, I got a last-minute room at The Spa. I think...
