There were some positives but overall, they were far outweighed by the negatives. Our room was situated above the kitchen and the extractor fumes leaked out into our room so we had an overpowering cooking smell, even with the windows wide open. The carpet had not been vacuumed and there was only one bath towel. The evening meal in Cinatra's... More

4 of us visited this restaurant ( Cinatra's ) one Thursday evening and enjoyed an excellent meal. The food was well prepared and presented on very warm plates ( which is a particular fad of mine) accompanied by a superb Chardonnay. The food, beer and wines are all reasonably priced and served by 2 lovely ladies , Debbie and Sophie.... More

We decided to try the Dorset for a meal having read the past reviews and the fact it is relatively local. The restaurant itself is well presented with a comfortable atmosphere. Upon arrival we were shown to our table and the service throughout the night was friendly and prompt, but without being pushy. There was a decent selection of food... More

Comfortable b&b above a pub and restaurant. The locals in the pub were really friendly and gave us information about our trip. The owner was lovely and gave us advice and help for the rest of our break (we walked the Hadrian's wall path). The room was comfortable and the restaurant was great value. It is close to the start... More

I stayed in the family room of the Dorset arms for 2 nights with my wife and grandson. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome by the staff and locals. The rooms were very clean and excellent value, breakfast again was of a high standard and it seemed nothing was too much trouble. Overall... More

We have had Sunday lunch here on several occasions and each time has been fantastic. Whether the Carvery or off the Menu is he food has been delicious. The beer garden is great with a few treats for children. If it gets more popular they may have to take bookings for lunch!

Clean room and facilities, power shower was therapeutic, Staff were great, smiley and very helpful, had a great sleep and breakfast. The only thing i can grumble about was a squeaky bar door below our room (1), but i forgot to inform the manager of this. Location wise, yes the Hotel is on an estate, but neighbours were very friendly... More
