We visited this place after a funeral wake. The bar lady named Melanie was rude and not friendly at all! She needs to work on her customer service skills. The room was also freezing that we were in!

I was very disappointed with the pricing of everything, we paid £250.00 for food but there wasn't enough for how many people were there, there wasn't enough for 1 3/4 of a sandwhich for each person!! We paid 250 for basically no food at all..

This week end was the first time we had stayed at this supremely high standard accommodation. My husband and I have stayed in a variety of accommodations over a number of years including Travel Lodges etc, but none have ever reached the standards offered by this venue. The owners Peter & Melanie Sutherns made us feel very welcome from the... More

I stayed at Keepers Cottage for 2 week last April whilst visiting a friend. The room was great, very well kept and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and always served with a smile. I felt welcome and had a wonderful time there. I'll certainly recommend stay at KCL next time.

They are clearly very well practiced in offering this service and offered our funeral party a full bar service together with a hot drinks service. The buffet was very fresh incorporate hot and cold food - and there was... More
