Uneven experience as staff was terrific but facility showing age. Dinner was not too good but breakfast was very good. Had problem with shower which was fixed quickly by staff. Bar was comfortable and a good place to visit with other walkers.

Of the entire C2C this was our group's least favorite. The staff if friendly, fun and hard working but the facilities are marginal at best. The bed was comfortable and linens were nice but bathroom was so small and poorly designed that it was almost non functional. We also had no hot water so showering was out, and after a... More

Very disappointed with the tiny shower room attached to a standard room. The bed however was comfortable but the lack of a hairdryer meant going to breakfast with drippy hair. The evening meal was served with a friendly smile but the meal itself was poor.No wine list available and only two reds on offerAt Breakfast the bacon and sausages were... More

Great little hotel and bar - superb for walkers - and for local weekend course like the Smoky Jo's food smoking course. The breakfast is good but could do with updating and the service at breakfast could be better as the staff are courteous but lack the confidence to make you feel that they are focused upon your needs.

We arrived quite late after a long and tiring day on the Coast to Coast walk and were made very welcome. The rooms were spacious, warm and comfortable with enormous beds. Enjoyed the excellent bar meals and were well looked after by Angela and Stacey. At breakfast which was again delicious and substantial, Stacey, despite being very busy still managed... More

Well behaved dogs permitted even in the bedrooms, a big plus on a walking holiday. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the food good. Perhaps it was slightly overpriced for the standard of the room compared to other hotels on our holiday but acceptable. Coast to Coast walkers were thick on the ground so they obviously don't mind dirty boots... More

We stayed here as part of the C2C walk. It was a good choice because it is a full service hotel - accommodations, food and bar - which is nice after a long day of walking. It is a little way out of town and you have to double back to reach the C2C trail again in the morning. The... More

Stayed one night on a group walking holiday with dogs. They couldn't have been friendlier. Room was v comfortable though the ensure was tiny, which is the only real criticism. Evening food was good and beer excellent. Breakfast was also good with generous portions. Good value.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in April for a 3 night break over the weekend on our first ever Groupon deal. I had read the Tripadvisor reviews before we went and did wonder whether I had done the right thing in booking. This feeling disappeared as we walked into the reception area and was banished from my... More
