We had an extremely comfortable stay here with superb food and attentive staff. The staff displayed first class customer service skills and despite a very busy restaurant, the service was excellent. We travelled from Northamptonshire to see my terminally ill mum and in this regard the crooklands staff were very caring and helpful. This meant so much.

Stopped her for one night while headding north. Very easy to find, off the motorway. Room was neat and tidy, comfy bed and breakfast was very filling. Had a TV, tea/coffee facilities - if you run out there are more at the end of the corridor to help yourself. Nice deep bath too.
