My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday. The staff were all lovely, friendly, charming, helpfull. We had been told about this place by a friend and I had read the Jay Raynor review so we were optomistic about what lay ahead. The canapes were melt in the mouth awesome - things had started well....

We stayed in room 10, a wonderfully light room which faces more or less south-west with panoramic views over the roof tops to the surrounding hills. You can lie in bed and enjoy the panorama. The room is very light, on a sunny afternoon I had to use my sun-glasses to read and, since the blinds are also light, if... More

Our 3 day stay was far too short. My 16 year old boy thought he had 'died and gone to Heaven' was his comment about the food. The food was absolutely superb. The service was great too. Every member of staff was friendly and personable. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed his visit too. The whole family, that is 2 adults and... More

A good comfortable hotel, staff very pleasant and helpful. Room could be updated looking a little worn. Food is very good, but if visiting for more than 4 nights be warned, there are only 4 options on each course of the menu so it could get repetitive. Overall a nice pleasant stay

We spent two nights here and were impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the breakfasts. However, at this time of year (sunrise at 5am) the room in which we were staying (No 8) was very light in the early morning despite the blinds and made sleeping difficult.Curtains would have greatly improved this situation. Also, the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is in an ideal location. We had room 7 which had great views. The room was light and airy. Fresh milk instead of UHT. And a little nip of sherry each night. The staff are excellent. Always helpful. The breakfast is extremely good - especially the haddock. Small but lovely garden -... More

Clean, comfortable, friendly, welcoming, and just in case you did not get the message from the other reviewers the food is just incredible. Clever combinations, bursting with flavours superbly presented. We ate in the hotel on four out of five nights and tried most of the dishes on the menu - all were excellent. I am pescatarien and was offered... More

We stayed here whilst on a walking weekend. The owners and staff could not have been more helpful. The evening meal menu was so appealing it was difficut to decide what to chose. The chef, a local man, provided clever tasty food. I will happily return here. The rooms are 3*.

We would just like to thank the owners for making us feel so welcome during our recent overnight stay. We'd booked dinner, bed and breakfast and couldn't fault a thing. Most enjoyable was eating in the restaurant, where there was a good choice; a tasty range of dishes, executed brilliantly. (A "thumbs-up" for the request of no mobile phone use... More

2 night trip planned but unfortunately had to cut short. Very understanding owners and a big thank-you to them. Lovely upstairs room-perhaps could do without the chair as had to move to open wardrobe! Great bathroom brightened by skylight. Superb meal-great choices including winelist. Will hopefully return for a "proper" stay!!
