This booking was for two people only. It clearly states on the booking engine No Children. No extra person was mentioned either on booking or on check-in. As soon as noise was heard staff realised that a child had secretly been brought into the Hotel. This is the second time that this customer has contravened the policy which he agreed... More

Spacy room, good warm tap, beautiful view, lovely garden to read a book, do some embroidery or just enjoy the sun and the view. We enjoyed the company of the family and hope to see them again. The first day Chris advised us to see The Vee with the hills ful of rhodondendrons, we went twice. You need to see... More

Booked this hotel for 2 nights as we were traveling around the area. David and Mary were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms are comfortable and clean, bed was very good, large bathroom, and there was even hairdryer in a bedroom drawer. Breakfast (extra cost) was a good selection of cereals, yogurts, fruit, toast,... More

Stayed over the Christmas period, open log fire, plenty of wine and chocolates. This is a family run hotel, they are so welcoming and attentive. Good Value for money, comfortable and beautiful surroundings. Really enjoyed it, will be back again..
