I stayed for one night at the Chestnut, located on the outskirts of the town it offers great value for money with good food served in the bar or restaurant .Stayed in a double room, it was spacious and well furnished, highlight was definitely the excellent service and friendly staff, I would recommend the Chestnut.

Staff truly lovely people and owners too. Garden Room for a small private party was wonderful and staff always on hand to make sure we were okay. Dinner was excellent and the finished bill didn't hurt the pocket either. Warm, welcoming and any negative statements by guests are just picky. An excellent visit. Thank you Chestnuts. .........

Stayed here two weeks ago for a few nights, staff were extremely helpful, nothing was any bother to them. Food was excellent it was reasonably priced with good sized portions, the sticky toffee pudding was by far the best I've ever tasted. Would recommend the hotel to all my friends, we would stay here again most definitely.

Did not stay at the hotel, but were in for a family meal on Sunday and they had a large menu, although not a great deal that jumped out at me. However, I opted for the Cajun chicken and this was reasonably priced as they do a selection of dishes at £7.95 before 6.30pm. I would say the starters and... More

The bedrooms are comfortable though a little small. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The food in the restaurant was very tasty and the service was good. There are plenty of choices on the dinner menu. There is also a good selection for breakfast. We enjoyed our stay and will be returning.

Went in for lunch and decided to order off the light lunch menu. Portions are really a bit too small considering the price. Ordered a diluting juice with tap water and was charged £2. Just a bit tight on their part. I said so and was told that's just the price. You can't charge 2 £2 pounds for a dash... More

First impressions were great, the staff were all very friendly and welcoming, the hotel was cosy, our room (room 4) was spacious, very clean and the bathroom was also clean and nicely decorated. The double bed was two single beds kept together,... More
