Spent a really enjoyable night in Arnold's last Fri. Weather was wet cold and v windy - Arnold's was so cosy and welcoming with the big peat fire in reception and the comfy red seats. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We will certainly come back again for a winter break.

We stayed here in early December with about 60 people after our wedding. From the warm welcome, great bar, cozy fireplace to the nothing's-ever-too-much service this place will never let you down. In particular I would like to highlight the attitude of Laura on the front desk. You simply cannot buy the level of thoughtfulness and kindness she approaches her... More
