I booked this hotel at the very last minute, after ringing a premier inn and being quoted double what the Thomas hotel quoted me, and to be honest it's more relaxed and homely, good food and friendly staff, Tom could not be more helpful, when I work again in this area I will have no hesitation in booking in, I...

Stayed here on an overnight stop, perfect for that. The food (10oz ribeye) was amazing, the real ale superb and the room was just right. One little thing, no hot water in the morning, but a tepid one wakes the soul. Lovely place, nice staff Breakfast is wonderfull too

Stayed for a couple of nights over the weekend. Got a fine big room which was very comfortable and I felt good value for money. A few things about the stay bugged me. I found the staff pretty uncommunicative. I think it would be better if the 'reception' was separate from the bar. The person who greeted me simply wanted... More

I din't know why but we weren't expecting anything very special but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at The Thomas Arms. Reception is in the pub (good selection of beers and very welcoming). Room was large, modern and airy, with a tidy bathroom Breakfast was again in the bar area and overall we were very pleased with our stay

Lovely Team Dinner at the Thomas Arms. All the staff were welcoming and friendly and the bar area had a nice atmosphere. Our table was ready but we didn't feel rushed with our pre dinner drinks and our food was served promptly when we were seated. A realaxing and really enjoyable evening for our group. Thank you!

We received a warm welcome on arrival to celebrate our Valentines evening. Although the restaurant was busy, which was to be expected, we were made to feel as if we were the only couple dining this evening. The restaurant had been beautifully decorated for the occasion and there was ample amount of attentive staff on duty. Food was fabulous, atmosphere... More

We returned to stay at The Thomas Arms after a gap and still found it welcoming,warm and very friendly. Dinners and breakfasts were well cooked. The large room was good but cold - one radiator on an exceptionally cold night did not take care of us very well! The TV remote did not work - but then it appeared to... More
