We booked a 2 night break via 'Secret Escapes' so got a very good deal with dinner included one night and a free bottle of wine if eating in restaurant on second night. Check in was effortless, first impression of our room was great, the furniture and fixings are of very high quality and although our room was quite snug... More

We stayed for 3 nights midweek with our 10 week old son We were all made to feel very welcome and were very impresed with the hotel. The room was beautiful and contemporary. The overall hotel design around the courtyard was an excellent setting for some early evening drinks in the sunshine. We ate in the restaurant and it was... More

Hotel staff were very friendly, and extremely helpful. Room was very spacious and comfortable. Huge bathroom and air conditioning in the room. Great selection of ales in the bar and the restaurant had a very reasonably prices menu. Eggs Benedict for breakfast is highly recommended.

It is a bit different spread out over lots of buildings - but all the more fun. every room is different and a bit quirky with striped carpets and dark muted walls. the little touches are what makes it - free water and milk in the room fridge, filter coffee for the morning. Food was fresh - the pulled pork... More

We required a venue that could cater for a small wedding reception (up to 60 people) that also has accommodation. We were also looking for a function room with character, as we had a themed wedding reception. The Barn was perfect: wooden floors, exposed brick walls, high ceilings with exposed wooden beams. We also needed a venue that wouldn't mind... More

We stayed here last weekend for a friends wedding (herd in the Barn function room). Our room was simply amazing! Four poster bed, comfie as few hotel beds ever are. HUGE bath! Fantastic staff who went out of their way for us. The food was great and well priced. We will definitely be back!

A lot of money has obviously been spent and the result is very stylish. It is an interesting set of buildings arranged around a courtyard. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We only had breakfast but it wasn't 't great to be honest and below the standard you would expect for an otherwise very nice hotel.
