We were made very welcome when we stayed for a night 5th January. The staff couldn't be more helpful sorting out a room error for us, we had a great meal, my husband said the beer was good and we have a comfortable night in a lovely room, and breakfast was the icing on the cake.

What a pleasant surprise this hotel was. We have stayed in a number of Inn Keepers Lodges and this has been by far the best. The whole hotel was refurbished in June and they don’t seem to have skimped on the refurbishment. You are issued with your own parking bay for the length of your stay free of charge which... More

This is a recently refurbished pub/hotel and the standard of the decor reflects this; the accommodation is clean and fresh. The bedrooms are comfortable and warm, providing the regular furnishings with tea/coffee and toileteries in the bathrooms. No problem with checking in; it was nice to actually be shown up to the room, rather than simply being directed and the... More
