Sorry to be a party pooper but I speak as I find. We went here for our wedding anniversary and this is an accurate review of the proceedings. Pre-dinner drinks: my pint of cider was flat, had to be replaced Resturaunt layout: way too many tables packed in. All the couples tables arranged in a row along a back wall,... More

From the moment you enter the place you can see whoever came up with the concept of this place is a little bit bonkers but that's good we like bonkers! The place is quirky and fun to be in. The staff are amazing, can not do enough to help you. We arrived and had late lunch, a "beef sandwich" but... More

A really nice hotel but disappointed that the upgraded room we were recommended to book by the hotel was a let down. The themed heifer room sits immediately above the kitchen and as a consequence is red hot. There is also a large ventilation duct for the kitchen which wraps around two of the external walls to the room and... More

I can't even remember now how I found out about this place but on looking at their website I thought it would be great to treat my husband to a weekend away here. As he is a serious chocoholic I knew I wanted to book the chocolate room but it was only 2-3 months before his birthday so it had... More

The Hotel is excellent, the service by the staff is exceptional and they serve the best seafood I've ever experienced, the Lobster Thermidor is superb! The quality of this hotel is second to none, I can highly recommend it.

The staff were very helpful but not over powering.Nothing was too much trouble and the food was really good and well presented.Our room was beautiful and had little extra touches. For example a lovely teddy on the bed and a welcoming anniversary card, and as well... More

The staff were very attentive without being over bearing, the room was good and the food was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this Hotel for a short break especially if you can take up one...

We had stayed twice before and when we wanted somewhere to go on our honeymoon, we thought straight away of the Heifer. We went for the 2 day gourmet break which was just fantastic. We were so well looked after from start to finish by the excellent, proud and passionate staff and the levels of service and hospitality were second... More
