The staff were really friendly and helpful the grounds are beautiful and would make a great backdrop for any photos. The rooms are lovely and clean. The only negative if it is that is the bath takes ages to fill. Loads of TV... More

Lovely large room on the first floor with an enormous bed and plenty of space. I wasn't keen on the french doors which opened inwards only being secured with bolts at the bottom rather than locking in a more conventional manner!! As a solo traveller I felt security was a little lacking there. I usually don't sleep well when away... More

Stayed here for 1 night for the first time ever. It is very well placed being around 1 minute from the M6. The Hotel is very picturesque and stands within large beautifully manicured grounds. Plenty of car parking spaces then entry into the hotel itself via a large planted courtyard - again very pleasant. The hotel itself is very nice... More

When we stayed we went for a room and gourmet meal deal. The room was very dated and there was very little hot water, when we complained about the lack of hot water we were told there were lots of people staying, but when we went for dinner the place was dead, with only a few cars in the car...

I stayed for 4 nights on business and I couldn't fault the room. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Whilst the staff were pleasant and polite, the level of service was not great.

Stayed here for one night en route up North. We used a Buy A Gift voucher and decided to stay here as it was close to the M6.

Dear Fatcontroller thanks so much for your positive comments after your recent stay at the hotel. The bedroom doors are managed by closing mechanisms designed to stop them banging and I have asked our maintenance team to check them and adjust where necessary. Otherwise, glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and thanks again for your nice comments. More
