I've visited here many many times and I've never had a problem, the food is always perfect, staff are very attentive and the atmosphere is lovely! I'll definitely be returning and do recommend to friends. To those who seem to have problems, people are only human and make mistakes, I'm sure if you were to bring the issues up at... More

It's hard to make a definitive judgement on this pub/hotel. My wife and I certainly enjoyed our stay there but then often the quality of your accommodation doesn't always determine the level of pleasure of your stay. Not exactly in a remote location, just of a reasonably busy road, it can hardly be described as nesting in a rural idyll... More

We stayed in one of the hot tub suites (room 13, which isn't quite as good as the other one, in my opinion.) MASSIVE bed- it felt like I was alone in it, which was very comfy. The decor of the room was very nice, too. Lovely box of chocolates and mints on the bed when we got there. Room... More

We stayed for two nights on our mini moon, there were some issues on the second day which were rectified very well. The duty manager Kimberley was excellent in dealing with my complaints and made our second night much more memorable than our first. The owner at checkout was also very good and apologetic, this has lead to me giving... More

We have just had a really good night at the Tempest Arms. We stayed in an executive suite(Room 14) which was worth every penny. It was spacious and very comfortable with a french door opening onto a mini balcony over-looking the river. The cookies available from reception were delicious. The food was excellent and very well presented.The staff were very... More

Stayed here for 2 nights over the easter holidays. We arrived early for check in but our room was already ready. Greeted by friendly staff we was even offered free cakes! The room was lovely and clean and tidy. There was fresh bottles of water and flapjack in room and these were changed daily with the towels. The restaurant was... More

I have visited this hotel twice already this year and loved it both times! The first time I stayed in hot tub suite 13 - this room is amazing! The second time my boyfriend booked hot tub suite 11 so that we could see which one we preferred for future reference however on check in was told we had been... More

I've been here 3 times recently as The Tempest continues to be one of my favourite places to eat in the area. We own a Holiday Cottage and recommend it to all our guests many whom also have had an enjoyable meal here. There's a great menu and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Now my children are becoming... More

My wife and I enjoyed a meal there a couple of days ago and I can honestly say the quality, the service and the meal itself was top quality. We look forward to visiting again next time we are in the area.

My wife,daughter and I went here on Easter Monday for lunch. It's been my second visit here, the first time was for evening meal and stay over. I thought the food wasnt as good this time though. Also the bar staff need to be a bit more welcoming, they were more focused at getting you served and away from the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sorry about the fast service at the bar I will certainly pass on you comments to the team we are usually a jolly bunch ! Can't really comment about the food as you haven't mentioned what was salty ? Hopefully you will call again soon and thank you for recommending... More
