As part of our Coast to Coast walk we ate here on two consecutive nights as the first meal was so good and the waitress was so friendly and efficient. Our first meal was on a busy Friday evening but we were made welcome and the waitress explained that we were still in time to order from the early birds... More

We were impressed with the food in the bar and there is private parking but we weren't too impressed with the room. It was supposed to have wi-fi but it didn't and the room was very small and pokey. The sleep quality was good though but everything seemed a little tired. Car parking was very tight and we had trouble... More

Booked a two night stay to have a day in Richmond and a day at the motor racing at Croft. Didn't like the idea of pay before you stay. We had room 12 on the third floor, the room had plenty of space and the bathroom was quite large and very clean. But there was a problem getting to the... More

Arrived at 8pm Saturday evening, had a little wait for the bar staff to become free. Member of staff then took our details, checked in, and lead us to our room. Breakfast served 8-10am Sunday morning. Asked if we needed to eat, went straight into the restaurant area. Meal was lovely, served quickly and very hot. Couple of real ales... More

Hotel is great, i have stayed before. Booked hotel through eviivo, do not go through them. Cancelled hotel throgh eviivo 2 weeks before stay and eviivo didnt inform them so now batteling to be refunded, even after 3 months. Do not let this dissuade you from hotel, wasnt their fault but book direct.

Food was great, welcome good but rooms are seriously in need of a revamp , I think new people have taken over and so plans to do a revamp may be in the pipeline. Towels grey and shower cubicle not nice, doors sticking and it was raised off the floor to high for safety comfort.
