Myself and the wife stayed here for one night having attended a wedding reception at the hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made feel very welcome. The food served was excellent, both dinner and breakfast the next morning. Our accommodation was in the separate building across the road from the main hotel, only a couple of minutes walk... More

Stayed in the lodge with my 2 1/2 year old. Were in the lodge, which is over the road from the hotel. It felt like going into a dorm or travel lodge. A bit of a let down after the warm and homely feel at the reception area. However....it was quiet....very quiet. The TV choice was only 4 stations and... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. While I am delighted to hear that you would stay with us again, I am disappointed that most of your stay was a negative experience, as this is at vast odds with the majority of our guests’ experiences. I'm disappointed to hear that you found the lodge 'dorm like'. The Lodge is the... More

After receiving a voucher for 2 nights B&B from our children for Christmas we decided to use it immediately before going back to work. The voucher was valid for the lodge, we checked in quite late on Friday evening and the girl on reception was lovely. Even though the website states that the lodge is the newest part of the... More
