Welcoming and helpfull staff, Comfortable warm room with TV, only stayed one night so didn't use many of the facilities, and didn't get chance to look around the grounds due to bad weather. Food was good. Hope to return when the weather is better.

Keep it up and we'll be back soon. One little thing for the management leaders....... If your hosting... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a Living Social deal with my wife and we loved every minute. Lovely warm and spotlessly clean comfortable room, absolutely superb breakfast and dinners and the icing on the cake - lovely and friendly staff made us feel really welcome and special. I make no exaggeration by saying that the two dinners I had... More

In fact the hotel is refurbished to a very high standard. All the staff we came across from the bar, restaurant or... More

Me and wife stayed here for 2 nights, we have stayed many times in the past. We enjoyed our stay apart from 1st nights evening meal, where after 1 hour and 20 mins we still hadn't had our main course and felt we had been neglected and forgotten about, none of the staff seemed to know what they were doing...

First visit here and although the new aesthetic was not quite to my taste, who cares because that's my only slight quibble. The advice on booking over the phone while comparing notes about the excellent website photos of the rooms I was interested in was extremely useful. Dinner was included in the rate and was a thoughtful five course menu.... More

After a long walk we arrived at this lovely hotel and were able to have a swim and a sauna. We then had a delicious meal in lovely calm surroundings. The rooms are decorated stylishly with nice little touches.The staff were all very friendly.

Good value one night stay on the deal we got. All felt clean fresh and cared for. We didn't have an evening meal on the premises but we are to understand that it is very good quality. Really impressed at how even the simple things are really well done for breakfast. Handy location for a short walk into town with... More
