We have eaten at this hotel a few times and the food has always been excellent so when it came to choosing a wedding venue the Croft was our choice. Throughout the planning they were very helpful and tried their hardest to accommodate all our needs. My son had his wedding reception here last week and it was a lovely... More

Checked in to hotel for single night only, very relieved to say ! Bar area and restaurant very pleasant, clean and well presented with very attentive staff. Food was also pretty good and a reasonable price. Once upstairs in the hotel - an entirely different story. Very very aged and unloved room. Door latches loose and hanging off, light switches...

Decided to have dinner here on a Saturday night (unbooked) ordered our food whilst having a drink in the bar - food brought to us despite our request to sit in the restaurant. We were moved into the restaurant. Had to ask for a wine list and eventually my husband had to get up and find someone to order our... More

My son and his fiancée held their wedding here, and it couldn't have better. The canapés (which were delicious) and Prosecco was ready and waiting when we all arrived back from church, and everything was organized with precision. The bar staff were very accommodating to such a large crowd and Louise saw to it that everything else ran like clockwork.... More

I'm not a one for leaving a review but after the experience I had I thought I'd better. Where do I start.... I rang the hotel a couple of days before arriving as the reservation had been booked for a while. Only to be told was I sure I had booked under my name? After I searched my emails to... More

The Croft Hotel describes itself as a "Gastro Pub" and I have to say, the food was superb! Staff were friendly and the bar and restaurant areas have been refurbished to a very high standard. Unfortunately, the same can't be said upstairs and the stairs and corridors look very tired. The bedroom was spacious and well equipped with free WiFi... More

Staff very welcoming & attentive. Our first room, no 6 was nothing special. I felt it needed some attention. There was a slight... More
