Booked for a weekend break a while ago and though our room was spacious, well furnished and comfortable the bed itself was far too 'bouncy' - I felt it every time my husband turned over - and the duvet too thin for the cold weather, so didn't sleep too well. We had been warned the lift was out of action... More

This year's visit by our walking club was again a great success and we were well looked after by the hotel staff, who managed things well considering the refurbishment in progress. The food at our dinner and at breakfast was very good once again. A bit of feedback though on "make your own muesli" - stop it please. I'd rather... More

Stayed with a group of friends for a long weekend. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation so not the best first impression when you are greeted by scaffolding. This also meant there were no public areas other than the temporary dining room and a couple of settees in reception. For a group of friends this restricted socialising. However, the staff... More

Stayed for 5nights what a superb hotel it will become once the refurbishment has been completed. Stayed in a refurbished room with heated toilet seat, what more could one want. Staff very attentive, meals in the Adam room still first class. A big thank you t Albert and Ian so attentive.
