This hotel is a real little gem. I only stayed one night with some colleagues but we all agreed that the hotel was full of character and very comfortable rooms. Good selection on the menu and reasonable prices. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Overall a good experience.

Very pleasant hotel, comfortable beds. Our room had the most beautiful view! We were with friends and we all said it would have been better to have a separate dining area for hotel guests but we all thought the food was very good.

We booked in as we were going to a family wedding across town. We were welcomed by the lady who was behind reception who was chatty and friendly, she told us where our room was (it wasn't part of the main hotel and so were a bit worried as to what the room would be like) . We went down... More

Great staff, very friendly, good location. Great food choice, not too expensive. Suggest asking for a room in the main hotel if it is raining. Views good from the bar/lounge. Wifi excellent. Suitable for all.

There were no vacancies at the local Travel Lodge or Premier Inn so we booked the BWHT Country House Hotel. It was a little further out from the function that we were attending but on arrival this was compensated by the lovely view and presentation of the Hotel. The receptionist was nice and friendly and even booked a taxi for... More
