A bit dated in places perhaps, but clean, good bar and restaurant. The staff were helpful and provided a friendly service. Room was fine, having everything I needed with an excellent stand alone shower

I had my wedding reception here in mid June 2014. From the day we booked, the staff were really helpful, and very flexible with times, food options and rooms. On the day, they were very patient with us interrupting them setting the room up so we could decorate the tables! On arrival, they had everything sorted - the room looked... More

A nice friendy hotel with character. I found it very comfortable - bedding was definitely cream not yellowing! Helpful staff, extensive unpretentious menu, lovely bar. All in all, excellent value for money.

Very old fashioned hotel, decor needs TLC and fast! Smelt like damp everywhere. Large rooms, comfy bed, clean. Shame about the decor. Helpful & polite staff. Very good prices in the bar (1 round of 14 drinks came to only £28!). Thought £76 was steep for this hotel!

We stayed at the Cedars for a short trip to visit relatives, having travelled from Edinburgh. From the outset the service we experienced was outstanding. All the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very comfortable and clean and although there were functions on in the hotel both nights, we were not disturbed at...

On arrival to this hotel, it was soon apparent that this was a very run down hotel in need of much refurbishment. My room (22) smelt damp. The covers were sent to be white but were yellowing. The food was served in the bar among gossiping staff and was average pub grub. Room 22 is near to reception and you... More

Cheap cheerful and to the point. I booked late and had a really nice time. The room was clean and tidy. I was a little dubious of the pics i saw on line, but gave it a go anyway.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel and I am very sorry to hear that your experience at The Cedars was disappointing. I accept that at the time of your arrival, the staff were fully stretched following a lunch which had over-run but this is in no way an excuse for an unwelcoming greeting. Please accept my... More
