We booked a table in advanced telling them it was for our wedding anniversary, when we arrived they had set the table romantically. The starters and the main course were of a very good standard obviously the Chef knows what he is doing and the service extremely good, could not fault. The desserts were not quite to the same standard,... More

Comfy bed, nice decor, gorgeous big bath and lovely doors opening onto a garden. Went to the bar for drinks and the staff were very friendly, made us laugh (James) and the breakfast was... More

We booked this hotel more than six months in advance to attend a family wedding nearby. We booked one single room, one standard double and one superior double (the hayloft) and based our choice of hotel on the pictures supplied on the hotel website. The pictures on the website couldn't be more different if they tried. Furthermore, despite booking six... More

We stayed here as our friends had their wedding and reception here. The wedding was brilliant and the venue ideal! Our room was lovely and spacious and clean. We did have a room which looked out onto the high street which did mean it was a little noisy into the early hours with people waiting for taxis etc but this... More

Nice hotel in good location. Room and bed very comfortable, modern bathroom, furnishings a bit tired. Restaurant food was excellent with attentive, friendly staff. Our reception experience was good, cheerful and helpful with local enquiries. Would definitely stay there again.

We stayed at the hotel from a deal. It was supposed to be a treat for us but it was really disappointing. The receptionists were very nice and helpful as we had a few problems with the room. The room itself was beautiful, but we didn't have hot water or any heating. The receptionists found an electric heater and put... More

Lovely location and room was excellent, however the reception received when check in was less than welcoming, who appeared to know nothing about the hotel, we ordered a morning newspaper (in fact we asked twice), it still did not arrive. The bar/restaurant food is very average evening meal with cheap frozen chips, we chose the scallop starter which was completely... More

Stayed at this hotel on a deal and wasn't impressed with the hotel or breakfast, however I would recommend dinner in the restaurant. Reception staff were not friendly on arrival, and no smile! Room although had been refurbished the finish is poor. Couldn't even sit on toilet properly as not enough room and no tea in the room just coffee,... More
