Stayed over the August Bank Holiday. What makes this hotel so great is its staff. Rachel and Phoebe have to be two of the nicest hotel receptionists I have ever met. They were both so helpful and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel itself was full of charm. The feature lounge area was not huge, but it has... More

My wife and I stopped here with my daughter a her boyfriend. We stayed in a two bedroom 'cottage' at the back of the hotel. There are two bedrooms and a kitchen 'living room' type area plus a bathroom. Everything was clean and tidy and the only problem we had was with the loo seat but once I had reported... More

Unfortunately, this hotel does not live up to expectations. We stayed in one of the modern self-catering apartments situated in the courtyard to the rear of the hotel and can say that the standard we found certainly did not justify the room rate we paid. Check in was stated as between 3pm and 7pm - we later found out that... More

They have managed to maintain the character of the old building with a modernised interior. The room was generously proportioned with a well appointed bathroom. Good value for money. The breakfast was adequate.

Excellent in every respect. Accommodation as described. Twin beds at the top of the house were comfortable and the towels magnificent - even had bathrobes. Clean and organised. Superb location. Breakfast easily obtainable elsewhere for those on a tight budget.

This is a well placed hotel with lots of character and very helpful staff, the only slight negative is that some rooms share a bathroom, I don't mind going out to the bathroom but sharing is uncomfortable for many with modern expectations. I would recommend thoroughly reading room details before booking. There is a really nice feel about the place... More
