The Sunday dinner is lovely and would recommend however the service is not! There seems to be a lot of young inexperienced waiters/ waitresses, the numerous times me and my friends have been we have had our meals served at different times, waiting so long for the veg that the meal was cold or not getting enough veg or waiting...

My Mother, me and 2 family members had lunch on 15 July for my Mother's birthday. We sat in the conservatory area overlooking the grounds. It was lovely, as was the food. We will definitely return. Apparently, the gardens are used for weddings etc and they were very well maintained. Unfortunately, I cannot comment on the rooms in the hotel... More

Visited the hotel as I was bridesmaid for my friend. The hotel itself is lovely and has a gorgeous garden with children's play area - which is safely enclosed in the garden. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are a little dated, but clean and comfortable. The food is absolutely gorgeous, I've been for many a lunch and... More

Quaintly located in a residential area but easily found with the use of Sat Nav Good parking and ample grounds for the entertainment of children Very quiet although a function was held on the night of our stay. All staff most welcoming and helpful Although only two storeys, a lift would have been useful. Room very well equipped but perhaps... More

Stayed a couple of nights in this hotel which is outside of town but so well connected to everywhere. Staff could not do enough for you and it had a real feel of a family hotel. Food was great and room really comfortable. For the price, was very pleasantly surprised and feel like I've found a hidden gem.

Our one-night stay was deeply disappointing. The front reception desk was unattended, there was no bell, and we had to find someone to check us in. We had two rooms, a single and a double, and both were cramped with barely room to move. The bathrooms were tired, tiny and poorly laid out. The double bed was too narrow and... More

Was here for my friends wedding and had an amazing time venue was very personal and extremely comfortable. Food for wedding breakfast and evening buffet was brilliant and could not fault staff for friendliness and helpfulness. Was a little disappointed with our room as was extremely small (room10) for the price but breakfast and cleanliness where good.
