The Temple is an excellent hotel and is good value. Our room (Room 6) was a good size and well appointed with a good breakfast tray (including shortbread biscuits) and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was large including a bidet and lots of various shampoos, lotions to use. Breakfast was excellent. The bar is cosy and well used most... More

I've been bringing walking groups to this area for several years and I have always stayed at the Temple. I think this was the best stay yet now that many of the improvements to the building have been completed. My partner and I were very satisfied with our room, which was clean and spacious; and as with all previous trips... More

I love this hotel. It's nothing fancy, but man is it comfortable and they really look after you. Feels like you're a spoilt child gone home for the weekend! The views from our room were phenomenal, and the bar needs bigging up a big with the open fire and choice of real ales. Breakfast filled us up without being too... More

Having spent a couple of nights at this hotel, the first of which we felt was cold and unwelcoming,as unbeknown to us the boiler had been a problem--now fixed. The room we had was a little old fashioned and had a slight musty smell but this was offset by the pleasantness of the staff and an excellent breakfast. The hotel... More

Our boiler was having it's annual service when you checked in and has not been a problem. If you had let us know that you felt cool in your room we could have provided you with an extra heater. We always find it quite sad that the first we know of a guests discomfort is when it is posted on... More

We stopped off at Temple Hotel to eat dinner with a relative who stayed in the hotel. I have to say we were not disappointed, the food was really tasty and definitely made to order and the price was very resonable too. Other the the food, the service was good from the friendly staff and my children we're delighted by... More

Thank you for your great comments we really appreciate this. We feel we must write a comment as we have ceased doing bar food and we are now only doing food for pre booked groups. This has not been an easy descision to make as we know many people have commented on what a nice meal they have had with... More

Excellent service, good range of breakfast choices, home-made jam, local ales in the bar, log fires, armchairs with views... There's no official one way system up to the hotel, but drive in from the south - look out for the obelisk on the corner of the valley road. If you do come that way, there's plenty of parking round the... More

I booked this stay through Hotels.com and after reading the reviews thought it looked a good option. Before we arrived we were warned about some decoration being carried out on the staircase but that it wouldn't disrupt our stay. On arrival , we arrived 3 hours early to find new carpets being laid and the owner was very apologetic ....it... More

We have visited this hotel as part of a group for several years now and are always received in a friendly and helpful manner. The hotel is going through repairs and redecorating but retains its character. As the reason for coming here is a group meal (or two), we have found the food excellent with service to match. Nothing seems... More
