I cannot say enough positive things about the staff who were friendly, helpful and welcoming. My room was large and the bathroom a reasonable size and pretty clean. However, the room was quite tired and the bathroom needed a re-fit in my opinion. Also I was overlooking a flat roof which was a shame given that the gardens are so... More

We used the hotel as a stopover on our return from Glasgow to Worcestershire. We found it exceeded our expectations in regard to welcome, value and cleanliness. Our room was bright, large and with a good en-suite. The evening meal was freshly cooked and tasty - we opted for two from the specials board. We would certainly like to stay... More
