We had a great hospitable stay and was well looked after by staff on a recent stay. The room allocation was spot on and the evening event was bouncing . Would highly recommend as a wedding venue for its great character and layout .

Stayed at the hotel recently whilst we were at our friends' wedding. Everything about the day was fabulous and the staff were extremely attentive. This is truly a beautiful hotel with lovely surroundings. The room had everything we needed and was nicely furnished and breakfast was very good. All in all a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again.

Such poorly trained staff. This hotel could easily be an asset to the area but the staff shocking.£170 a night for one person B & B so its fair to expect civility and a little bit of service. Such a lovely breakfast room but can this ever really offset the one scrap of cheap plastic ham on the buffet table?... More
