While working in the area last September I looked for a comfortable friendly hotel to use on a weekly basis. The job finished the beginning of April, I was given the same room every week, it was like a home from home. If I ever returned to the area this would be my first choice for accommodation

Venue fabulous, what a find. Service fabulous, staff so warm and friendly. Food just gorgeous from wedding reception through to evening buffet. Best beef I've tasted in a long while. Thank you to Avril for ensuring everything ran smoothly, all in all a perfect day.

What a lovely place to stay! We had our wedding here on 16th April 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The hotel itself was stunning and very well presented, and the staff were not only professional but friendly and always there to help. The attention to detail and heart warming reception from event manager Avril and owners Tony and Claire... More

Venue "Fabulous", Food "Fabulous", Service "Fabulous"... Will return again. Bar & Restaurant area gave a nice ambience. Good access for wheelchairs and helpful staff. Car park was more than adequate. Thanks again we all loved the day.

Attended a wedding anniversary and stayed over. A small hotel hotel that does a lot of functions (weddings etc). Room decor and standards a bit tired, but the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Rack rate (£160) is ludicrously over priced, but the £69 we paid via a biking site represented good value.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, room was lovely with king size bed and was spotless, food could be served in either restaurant or bar whichever you wished tried both. Food was excellent, and service was really good, the staff could not do enough, would recommend this hotel to anyone.
