Hunters is an old world hotel, and in my opinion lacked atmosphere. Car park was full of badly parked cars, I think the owners need to get out and mark spaces. We had to park in a field. The room was reasonable, clean but could do with some updating. Wall paper peeling in spots, carpet frayed in corners. Bathroom spotless.... More

We stayed here for one night and it was just wonderful. We had a most relaxing time. Beautiful gardens, lovely friendly staff with excellent food. The bedroom was large and comfortable. Hopefully we will return again soon.

It's still the same friendly hotel, with delicious food but we did find it rather chilly. It must be difficult to heat such a quaint place. There is nothing nicer than the peace of being able to read quietly in the Drawing room while enjoying a delicious cream -tea.

We stayed for 3 nights and had dinner in the restaurant every night. Our greeting at reception was very cool and we did not feel welcome. We were in room 17. It is a very large room on the ground floor looking out at the amazing garden. The bath was large. The room was a little bit tired and could... More

Once again I have been to Hunters, my second home! As always everything was perfect, the friendly staff, the gardens and the food, so comfortable and relaxing. I would recommend Hunters to anyone who values good food and relaxation..

From the moment we arrived, we were treated like royalty. We were fortunate to enjoy the gardens for lunch & tea with sunny sky's & warm temps. Can't say enough about the meals. All 8 meals were scrumptious. Highly recommend this Gem.

Hunter's Hotel provide 5* hospitality in an old world setting. Excellent service, great food and beautiful gardens. The bed turned down, curtains and shutters closed and the open fire lit in our room whilst we were at dinner. Silver service tea and coffee on demand - included in price. Oh, and the wonderful variety of fresh flowers throughout . .... More

Words can not express how much I enjoyed my time at Hunters Hotel! It has been almost a year since I visited and I still can't get that visit off my mind. I was excited to visit after I had read that Maeve Binchy used to escape to Hunters to write, but it far surpassed my imaginings! The building itself... More

This is a place I love but it is not for those who want gleaming modernity. A wonderful old fashioned and, dare I say it, slightly eccentric establishment. The food is good and it is fresh. The gardens and the vegetable gardens are magic. Lounging in the gardens in summer or sitting cosily inside in winter is an experience I... More

Those who apprehend squeaky doors and woodfloors better walk by and select a modern impersonal hotel. We liked the traditionally styled homely lounges displaying flowery fabrics and antique furnishing. where we enjoyed a perfect afternoon tea with gorgeous scones. The garden is picturesque and is a delightfull setting which we admired from our rooms. What a fine restaurant with excellent... More
