Stayed here for two nights on a Telegraph offer. Traditional style hotel with good restaurant. We had a superior room in the courtyard which was quite large with easy chairs and nice shower room. There was a pleasant garden, ideal for summer weddings and parties. Good WiFi reception. Our only mild complaint was that it took two requests to get... More

Stayed here for just a night, bar and food were excellent, recommend the steak and ale pie. Room was clean and tidy, bit warm on the top floor but managed a great nights sleep. Staff were very welcoming, made the whole experience very satisfying.
