We stayed here for a family reunion, and we're delighted. Everything was clean, the room was well proportioned. The service at reception and in the bar was very friendly and quick - both for drinks and bar food. I had the omelette for breakfast and it was absolutely delicious. Bear in mind that this is an old traditional hotel, so... More

Stayed here in November 2014. No lift so had to lug my bags up lots of stairs. Had a meal in the restaurant and was served an inedible burger with greasy fries. Starter and dessert were also very disappointing. The only good thing was the homemade brown bread. Next day at breakfast had to ask twice for a cup and... More

We decided to go out for a family meal. We were seated for approximately 30 minutes before a waitess came to take our orders. She took one order and left. We saw them serve a meal to the table next to us and we had to call the same waitress back to take the rest of our orders. A round... More

Went here over the weekend with a party of 6 adults and 5 children. It took roughly 30 minutes for anyone to come and take our order. When a waitress did finally arrive she took only one order headed off and the next time we saw her she was bringing in food for the people in the table behind us... More

I love this place. You can get excellent take away coffee (the best in the town as far as I'm concerned) tea and scones, lunch, dinner, or just a quite pint. I've experienced all and will continue to do so. The bar is really cosy and my favourite place to sit. Service is friendly and quick, the food is high... More

Stayed here for a family wedding. Really great, friendly hotel. Breakfast not the best but everything else was great and really helped to make a memorable stay. The staff were super friendly and I would recommend to anyone.

Such a fantastic little hotel with very nice rooms. Everything you need in the rooms including bottles of still and sparkling water. Lovely , helpful staff and a great location. The hotel has a pub and a restaurant both excellent and well worth a visit on their own. Highly recommend!
