I booked this hotel as we were due a visit to my Mum in law, but she had been booked
in for an operation, so we didn't want to stay with her. Our Son and his wife also chose this weekend to visit, so we booked them in too, and were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel was dog friendly, so they could bring their lovely collie. We had eaten at the hotel before, twice for lunch.
The lady who took the booking seemed a little uncertain, but assured me the rooms were booked. When we arrived there was a slight hiccup over the number of nights booked, but there was no real problem. The room was lovely, very clean, everything we needed, and an enormous ensuite.
The breakfast was very generous, the staff were helpful. In some places you get one rasher of bacon and one slice of tomato, but not here. We had booked dinner that evening,and were very pleased with the meal. There is a lot of choice, not just the 'posh fish and chips' which seems to have been referred to on here. The only complaint was from Mum in law who couldn't read the menu as she has poor eyesight,and is not used to dining by candlelight.
We also had Sunday lunch here, this is a very acceptable carvery, and is extremely popular. again the food was generous, I struggled to finish my main course.
Overall it was a very pleasant weekend, but we did find the hotel a little bit too warm.
