Lovely hotel and very friendly staff both on reception and waiting staff. Room was comfortable and spotless, slept well in very comfy bed. Window frames could do with a lick of paint but the building is beautiful with lovely grounds. breakfast was good plenty of choice and self service with waiter bringing out freshly cooked items continuously.

You are absolutely right do not park your car under the trees , our pigeons are not selective . Some of the windows are being replaced but this will take time. Other than that pleased you had a good time. More

A group of eight of us had a one night stopover during Easter weekend. The hotel staff were attentive and unfailingly helpful, particularly Phil. The breakfast was simply magnificent - a great set up for the day.

We spent two nights here and were happy with the location, a short walk into the town and pleasant surroundings. We were taken aback on entering the foyer which has strange decor but other rooms were better. You could see what a grand place the hotel had once been. Our room looked out on the garden, was spacious and clean... More

Thank you for your review The hall and reception area was done about 7 years ago , to suit the style of the building . Am happy you were satisfied with your room . The Turf Bar and Bistro provides fresh food , not frozen , ergo the very competitive market price . More

Really old fashioned hotel. Looks magnificent from the road, but just very tired and run down close up. Could do with some lighting in the car park. Reception dated and carpet looks knackered. Room was decorated well. However the ceiling light was hanging off the ceiling and the lights flickered, there was a nasty patch of what I thought was... More

Thank you for your review . Whilst I disagree with one comment , the others I am in total agreement with and in that condition the room should not have been let , all the relevant departments have now been informed of the failings . Sorry to have disappointed you . More
