We went to this hotel for 3 nights at Christmas, and the experience -- food, people -- was simply excellent. We did have a little trouble with no hot water on Christmas Day, but it was all sorted out by the afternoon (and they arranged somewhere else for us to shower). The 4-poster bed was lovely, the food excellent, and... More

I wrote a review for the restaurant as well. It's an amazing, friendly, luxury place to "be". Everything you need excellent value and top class friendly staff. Find a reason to go and stay and read the review in the restaurant section! Faultless and easily the best place I've ever stayed. Am going back!

My boyfriend and I went for a few nights here and had an amazing time! Right from the start we were welcomed by a friendly receptionist who explained everything and directed us to our room which was also very clean and nicely decorated. We were having a relaxing few days so chose to head down to the bar/restaurant for dinner... More

A friendly hotel with a very relaxed atmosphere. We were welcomed with mulled wine and mince pies on arrival and enjoyed our dinner on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day was very efficiently organised with lunch being served to somewhere around 180 guests! Considering the numbers involved the catering and waiting staff did a great job. For those who could still eat,... More

We have stayed at the hotel each year for the past 4 years for our November anniversary as it is a complete break away from the madding crowd which we love and tend to participate in an outdoor pursuit each time we have been there and these have always been well organised, fun and not overly expensive. We have also... More

We stayed here over the Christmas period and took our little dog. There was a lovely little stocking for our dog and a jar of marmalade for us in our room, which was sweet. The room looked nice but maybe the walls a little thin as heard noise from below us for most of the first night and then less... More

Very nice country hotel with very clean and spacious rooms serving good food. ideal if you want a quiet relaxing break For us it was a little too quiet with most guests retiring before 9.30 so totally lacked atmosphere. The one dislike we specifically had was allowing dogs into the restraunt during evening meal times. Barking at each other really... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I do understand we are not for everyone, and do not cater to everyones tastes and expectations. As a country hotel, we do pride ourselves in being a relaxed place to unwind, and hence why many of our guests do choose to retire early as they have enjoyed the day... More

Our first visit to the hotel and we will most probably make a return visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, food and service were very good. Our room was very nice and there were lashings of hot water whenever needed. The New Year's Eve dinner dance was excellent and the live band were exceptional. We did however find that some... More

Very friendly reception,and we were shown to a reasonably sized room with all the necessary amenities. The only small problem was that for shaving,the mirror was next to the toilet, and not above the hand basin, which entailed a certain amount of contortions. In the evening we were seated in the restaurant and confronted with a very unusual menu, with... More
