Had a voucher for afternoon tea which was expiring so we made the effort and used it - was pleasantly surprised at the lovely open sandwiches - four each and very filling - scone was a bit big so only managed half but was well worth the visit would definitely return.

We went with family and friends for afternoon tea, this was our second time and service and food was excellent, as building works going on we were in a separate room as opposed to the conservatory last time but was still as pleasant.

I took my daughter for afternoon tea to this hotel using a Travelzoo Voucher and we really enjoyed it. The open sandwiches, scones and cakes were delicious, as was the glass of Prosecco. We were bought a second pot of tea and asked if we needed anymore food, which we didn't as the servings per person were just about right,... More

Stayed overnight wanting a good nights rest. There is building work in progress, so parts of the building look like a building site. My room had the tiniest window which had not been left open so the room was like an oven and there was a very odd smell in the bathroom. Was ok for an overnight but would not... More

Took afternoon tea at this hotel which despite being very close to the noisy A.12 road was very good. The Hotel has some delightful and well maintained gardens and ponds which would appear to lend themselves to wedding photos. The tea consisted of a glass of Prosecco, very tasty opens sandwiches, egg mayonnaise, smoked salmon and Parma ham, cheese straw.... More
