This was an unusually run hotel, John was wonderfully funny. My son really took to to him and they enjoyed the good humoured banter. The hotel itself is quirky and reminiscent of a bygone era, the stay was a gift to us on a wowcher deal and I really didn't expect very much from it and when we pulled up... More

Delightful and different place. Lovely old country house in the country although in mumbling sounds of the M74 and a high speed rail link but don't let that put you off. A full size manikin of Johnny Walker in the breakfast room and two delightful concierge dogs who are useless at carrying bags add to the charm. The splendid John... More

The owner was very pleasant and showed us to our room (18) on arrival, nothing special. The welcome pack had loads of brochures about places to visit but nothing about the hotel. No emergency numbers for local doctors hospitals or even local taxis. The room had a few problems, the bathroom window would not open as the handles had been... More

Thank you for your review & we are pleased too note that John was very welcoming on your arrival. However we are very unhappy that you failed to enjoy your stay with us, let me address your points in chronological order. The lack of a welcome pack in the rooms is due to a recent inspection we had from visit... More
