Our entire marriage ceremony, wedding breakfast, evening reception held here in June 2015. It couldn't have been better, the Rosemallen suite with it's outside terrace was perfect, the grounds provided a great background for pictures, the staff super, guiding us through the day, the food terrific. The bridal suite superb, and the other rooms very comfortable. The whole 'country house'... More

We organised a 'birthday' meal at the Hotel for our fathers 90th birthday in June 2015. As my wife and I were driving over from Germany for the meal we arranged a double room for 2 nights as well. What an excellent choice! Highly recommended. David Cowell, Germany

Family of seven had dinner here for a birthday and we all had a brilliant meal. From the various starters of goats cheese, king prawns and a meat platter to main meals of venison, steak, monk fish to desserts creme broulle. Everything was delicious and the service was spot on! Our third visit and will return to this great venue.

Attended a wedding recently at this hotel and have to say it seemed to go like clockwork. The staff were helpful and dealt with the changes from setting up the ceremony to setting up the tables for the meal and ultimately turning it into a dance floor for the evening really efficiently and with minimum fuss. While catering for about... More

Always loved the eccentricity of this place, i mean the staff , not the building. The staff are a delight, from the Portuguese with their almost, dare i say it, Germanic efficiency to the wonderful young stout Scottish chap, who plays master of ceremonies with such aplomb and would not be out of place in a Dickens novel.They are a...

We use the Garvock for our weekly business breakfast meeting on a Tuesday. The service is great, facilities are excellent and the butchers sausages on a roll rock :-) Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a good well presented space for business.
