We arrived early evening to a welcoming reception by Shane. Very easy check in and our room was huge even though we only booked for a double room! Bonus! The room itself was spacious, clean, the bed was super comfy and the bathroom was super clean and modern! The charming French man who served us at the bar and for...

We recently stayed here for 3 nights DB&B. We had a downstairs family room which was spacious and exceptionally clean. There was plenty of storage space and a table and chairs. The bathroom was very nice with a lovely big walk in shower. The only reason why we have given it 4/5 is that, for me, the mattress was hard...

My husband and I just spent the last two days at the South Lawn with our dog Alfie. This was our first ever trip with our dog and we were unsure what to expect of the hotel and our dog! We arrived on a drizzly day but the staff were very welcoming and our room was ready early. Our dog...

I stayed in room 24 from 12 February to 14 February. On the 1st floor, It faces the rear garden, the fields and the sheep, and was quiet. The room was comfortable, and the walk in shower good. The hotel has been bought by a couple who were away, but the Personnel were very welcoming, particularly Manager Shane who was...

As a surprise I took my wife for lunch on 14th Feb at The Cedars Restaurant in the hotel. We have eaten here many times before and the new owners have done wonders in bringing the hotel back up to a really good standard. Good choice on the menu, all freshly cooked so that allergies and food intolerances easily dealt...

Difficult hotel to rate as it is clearly going through a transition. Firstly must compliment the staff who were all very friendly and efficient. The bedrooms has been recently refurbished, but other areas of the hotel felt like something out of the 1950's. Bed and bed covers were of a standard you would see in a bargain basement hotel which...

A difficult review to respond to. I find your references to linen, 1950s, and it being devoid of character difficult to understand and would welcome the opportunity to discuss what lead you to review with these references. I am struggling to understand your perspective and indeed have had a number of guests staying here who read your review questioning whether...
