Everything about the hotel and our stay was fantastic..food, service, hospitality, location all fabulous and I couldn't fault it, but when the people in the room next door, or upstairs, I'm not sure which, got up and showered/bathed, it sounded like they were in our room. There doesn't appear to be much insulation so the noise levels are quite high.

Stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and the hotel was welcoming. Had no problems sleeping the first night. However, the second night was okay until 6:30 am...there was a loud tapping from the wall and it didn't stop for two and a half hours! Not sure if this was linked to plumbing but it was difficult to... More

We stayed just one night and everything was excellent. Easy parking, a friendly and efficient welcome at Reception, a very well-equipped and comfortable room, a dinner menu with a wide choice and a good range of seating areas and a fine breakfast. The bar and some of the restaurant seating is in the old part of the hotel, shown on... More

Nice room, though pillows too soft for me. Bathroom could have been cleaner( hairs around bath) dirty teacup, kettle and tv handset worked intermittently. I found the food to be over dressed with fruit and rather bland. Staff were lovely though, very friendly and courteous. Very convenient just off M6 .

Stayed there for a night and hotel looks very good, well equipped, room big (booked premium one) and sparkling clean but sound isolation is so bad there I could hear neighbours going to toilet! Also found mattress too soft. Enjoyed dinner in their restaurant but didn't like breakfast, too fatty, why to fry bread in oil? I would stay there... More

We chose this hotel for a brief overnight visit to meet friends, our only regret was being only there for one night. On arrival I have to say from the outside the hotel didn't look particularly special however the minute we stepped through the door we began to appreciate what a wonderful little hotel this is. Without exception the staff... More

Very impressed indeed. Superb hotel, lovely rooms and the food is simply the best. This hotel is privately owned not a big chain and their attention to detail shows that it is their business and they want it to be successful. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. Nothing too much trouble. The spacious rooms are beautifully decorated and the... More

I've used this hotel over a long number of years for pitstops but never stayed until Friday 17th April. And what a treat. I asked for a room towards the rear as I'm a light sleeper. It was peaceful, very well presented and unlike many places I stay, where it's like I'm asking for the impossible, they were able to... More

Thank you for your comments the wifi at the moment does seem to be causing a few problems due to our location but BT are making changes to our little exchange, it will take until 2017 to fix, installing high speed broadband More

When we arrived at the hotel we were not sure of the location. However, we were able to travel and visit the Lakes and the attractions easily. The hotel itself was very warm and inviting. We were staying in one of the recently renovated rooms which was done to a very high standard. The room was very clean spacious and... More

Couldn't have chosen a better place for my 70th birthday celebration. Saturday night and 8 of us shared a lovely family meal. No one had any complaints at all. Our 4 deluxe rooms were lovely with the ultimate luxury of two really comfortable armchairs. As others have said there was a wifi problem in one room. Sunday lunch for a... More
