Blimey! Where to start.....! The first room we were given was like a sauna - room 3 on the ground floor. The room was very, very tired - threadbare carpet, missing handles off furniture, and a bathroom out of the 1940s - grim! My other half went to turn the radiator down, and the thermostat knob came off in his... More

A poor review in general. Nice setting let down by: -Waitress not knowing names of starter, my friend had to prompt her (picky I know but there were only two in her hand, ask the kitchen??). -Starters brought out incorrectly, missed a fish cake and gravalax (granted we changed our number of guests on short notice). HOWEVER... - That doesn't... More

Reception staff were friendly.On arrival to our room we were impressed at the size and pretty furniture.I was keen to unpack as were part... More

I have stayed here on many occasions over the last few years and have always been looked after well. Very comfortable rooms. The breakfasts are not as quite as good as they used to be, but then I guess that margins are getting tighter. Pity that you now have to pay £3 to park in the back car park -... More

Stayed here many times in years gone by, and it is an old adage that one should never go back as the place will have changed in the intervening years. First impressions were not improved by having to pay for the previousl free car park, although the charge could be credited against coffee or a soft drink, okay if you... More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely Sunday lunch here, the only problem was that the roast potatoes were soggy not crispy. That being said they did cater for my gluten and dairy intolerances and the staff were very attentive. I thought the restaurant was tastefully decorated and it was clearly very popular as we had to pre-book.

Recently stayed at the Spread Eagle when on business in the area. I was lucky enough to stay in the John Gielgud Suite which was a fantastic on two floors. The hotel is very nice although there apperar to be one or two things that need "finishing off" in the interiors. Nice breakfast and the staff were very helpful and... More

We stayed here for a night and booked in for a meal as well. Everything was so easy, checked in very quickly, meal at the restaurant was no problem and checking out was swift also. The room was a nice size, with an old fashioned style which I was familiar with, but had some original touches. The bathroom was clean,... More

Food was excellent but our room was small and the bathroom tiny and functional is all I can say about it! I am sure there are much better rooms than the one we were in. I have to say we were on an Amazon local package maybe should not expect too much.
