Just back from a self drive break to this Shearings hotel with my parents. Excellent welcome on arrival at reception. Check in was instant with all necessary information provided. My parents had a double room and I had a single. Both rooms were basic yet comfortable, very clean and more than adequate. I would say that my single room (201)... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Hotel. The room was a good size and very clean, bed was comfortable, nice size bathroom. The food was very good, but given the average age of the diners (senior citizens) our suggestion was that it might be an idea to cut down on the spices, peppers and garlic. That was our... More

We have just returned from a short break with Shearings. Excellent value for money, especially with the drinks package. This is the friendliest hotel we have ever stayed in, from reception, dining and housekeeping staff. They all work hard to make it comfortable for your stay. However Hotel could do with double glazing as our room was on the ground... More

Lovely hotel but the bedrooms looked a little jaded and in need of decoration. Staff were very pleasant and the food was lovely. A party of five of us went with Shearings coach holidays to this hotel and I have to say that it was good value for money. No complaints from me.
