We came across the county arms website whilst looking for a venue for a wedding reception. The dining space and number of rooms onsite seemed perfect for the number of guests we would be bringing. I called up and provisionally booked the date we wanted and was told a manager would call back in a couple of hours to talk... More

We stayed here on New Years Eve and payed £75 for a couple which I thought was reasonable. Rooms are nice, well appointed yet simple and uncluttered. Bed was comfortable although I didn't sleep well due to illness. One minor downfall was a reverberating hum throughout the night which did irritate a little. Presume this is from some kind of...

Stayed at this hotel for one night on the 11th December. We arrived very late in the evening but were able to check in without any difficulty. The gentleman on reception when we arrived was very helpful and friendly, as indeed were all of the staff that we met during our stay. The room was pleasant, the beds were very... More

Pleasant hotel, with good sized clean rooms. Good facilities. Comfortable beds. When we arrived our room was very cold. Turned the air-conditioning right up and it warmed up eventually. After that we found it very comfortable. Breakfast was extra but a worthy extra, taken in the bar area with a lovely view across the countryside. It was a shame that... More

Terrible. Not only did we wait an hour for our food when the restaurant was not even half full the food was disgusting. My sons pizza tasted like it had some pickle base on it. My brothers nachos had some "homemade" sour cream on it which tasted like lemon moose and the roasts where overcooked and lacked vegetables. We where.missing... More
