A big old country house with a large garden. The hotel had lots of character. The room was adequate except I found the mattress to be somewhat tired. The English cooked breakfast was very good. The evening meal not so but still edible. Pleasant staff and a quiet location.

On the down side the bathroom needed some attention with cracked tiles and the shower certainty could have done with a good clean as... More

We had very fond memories of this hotel from a previous visit, years ago when it was owned by the Feathers Group. I have often checked availability when arranging a weekend break but could never book it when I wanted it. I was delighted to book it for Easter weekend but the letdowns started about a month before I got... More

The staff were nice and friendly and the bar was nice and cosy. Breakfast was good - cold buffet style and cooked breakfast to order. Location is good too for the Northern and... More
