Value for money it was adequate. Unfortunately our room obviously had two radiator leaks in the room as there were buckets and towels on the floor. I was not aware of this on arrival and not sure a wet floor is what you would want. Also the bathroom door was loose and came off. The staff were friendly and efficient... More

We stayed for 2 nights in an executive double, paying just over £50 a night. The room was located in the main building – this may be where all the executive doubles are located (though can’t confirm this). For what was a very reasonable price for a Friday and Saturday night booking, I was impressed with the quality of the... More

We paid £90 for 2 nights in a twin room and were satisfied for the price. This is a beautiful old house that has been adapted. Our room was quite large for a twin and the colours, white and a light sage, were in keeping with the period of the property. Overall we were happy because it was clean, the... More

Absolutely awful. I booked this as a FAMILY room for a three and one year old and two adults. The room was horrifically hot. With exposed pipes that my one year old burnt his arm on it was so hot. We were so ill sleeping there I've never been so glad to leave a place. The windows were NAILED SHUT.... More

We booked in here for a one night stay, as soon as we entered the room it was dark and depressing, the whole room needed a good clean out, we found an old guests ear ring on the floor. The sink did not hold water and the whole bathroom needed a lot maintenance doing to it. The bed was so... More

Staff were friendly and food/ bar service was great. Our first impression was good but on closer inspection we were less pleased. Foyer at bottom of stairs smelt very strongly of urine. The paint work leaves a lot to be desired in the bedrooms. Outside needs some work and a clean up. Bathroom door got stuck and was difficult for... More

After a lovely family Sunday at home we decided to finish the weekend off with a meal and evening at The Elms. MISTAKE! We have been regular visitors for the last 10 years and the food has been on and off during that time. We have persevered for the sake of loyalty and convenience.(despite a new more expensive menu) This... More

We don't usually ask for alot from a hotel room but this stay did not meet the basics. Firstly the room was incredibly dark even with the lights on, possibly because there was only one bed side lamp. The toilet roll holder was broken therefore the roll was on the floor. The hairdryer did not work. There was a wardrobe... More
