On Sunday the 16th of this month ,my family decided to have lunch here as it happens to be a local hotel . Having been there on other occasions this I have to say will certainly deter us from ever going back . Having taken up our place in the queue it was immediately evident that one or two members...

I stayed here on the night of November 14th 2014. I was attending my cousins wedding. On arrival I checked in and was met with the utmost of friendliness. The whole process took literally one minute and I was en route to my room. My room was very spacious ground floor room. It had everything I needed, even a safe.... More

A good value hotel. We stayed midweek, but arrived late and so missed dinner in the restaurant. The last meal was at 9, which was a little upsetting (I was starving!!). Another point to note was there was some noise during the night, but I will probably put this down to a rambunctious guest. Otherwise all good

Myself and my husband booked a one night stay in this hotel and I must say we really loved it. It was so warm and inviting and the grounds were stunning. We had a lovely walk along by the river after a fabulous breakfast, which we found very refreshing. The staff were really friendly and very accommodating. Also its very... More

Firstly it took 20 minutes for someone to take our orders and my wife and I were the only two people there, then 30 minutes after we ordered... More
