The owners were friendly. Having seen photos of the building I didn't think we would be blown away when we arrived but the impact of such a beautiful old... More

Friendly, family-run, thoughtful, relaxing and excellent service in a beautiful setting. Fabulous food from the breakfasts through to evening meals-highly recommend. One of those rare places where they really have thought of everything to make your stay a good experience.

Stayed for a night on the way to Heathrow to head back home to Australia. We were the only people there as they had just been closed for 2 weeks which felt a bit wierd. The building is quite lovely and nicely renovated. The bedroom was spacious, clean and comfortable. Great shower & bathroom. Only downside was that we were... More

Stayed one Sunday night, in the pump room with our cocker spaniel Poppy who was very warmly welcomed. Lovely large spacious room and bathroom. Some people have commented on the road noise but it really wasn't a problem for us. Had a lovely relaxed Sunday lunch, top notch food, amazing cheese board, delicious breakfast and all beautifully presented. It would... More

Stayed one night as a birthday treat. We were given a very warm welcome by the owners! We enjoyed a delicious evening meal and an equally excellent breakfast! Our room was very comfortable and we really enjoyed our short stay in this lovely period hotel. Highly recommended!!

When we walked into the entrance lobby we were struck by the grandeur of the room, welcomed by a log fire. We had a basic room, which was ok, but we would hear the couple in the neighbouring room VERY easily when they used their bathroom. The food was average but the dining room very nice.

Stayed for 3 nights from 6 Nov in The Pump Room and had a fantastic time. The room had kept its old world charm but great mod cons such as under floor heating and lovely big bath and separate shower. Breakfast was scrummy. Loved the home made granola. We had an evening meal too that was very tasty. The owners... More
