The room was nice and the location was good. I have stayed in hotels before which have been converted from former private (grand!) houses and found that in some cases they look a bit tatty - that was not the case here. All the staff here were very friendly and helpful. Staff were happy to phone us a taxi into... More

We recently held our Wedding ceremony and reception at Ellersly House and cannot rate it highly enough. All the staff were incredible and could not do enough for us (including accommodating a large party of the brides family in the bar until the early hours the night before the wedding!!!) Our Master Of Ceremonies (Richie) was fantastic and the organisation... More

The food was exellent,as was breakfast each day. I understand the new owners only took over last year and there is an on going programme of refurbishment. But this... More

Throughout our short stay, the staff were absolutely fantastic; very polite and welcoming, and always happy to help. Breakfast was very nice, although there could have perhaps been more of it! The double room we stayed in left a bit to be desired. The bathroom in particular was dark as one of the lights wasn't working and there were no... More

This was my second visit and this time it was for a christening party which was held in the restaurant. Once again the staff were fabulous and so helpful. Smiles and greetings right across the board and I am sure that if it is physically within their power they will do anything to accommodate any request. The Ellersly was a... More
