Booked with booking.com. Disappointed last year with standard of the room - just not worth the money. As my large group of friends were rebooking and paid the same but had better rooms - why? I reluctantly agreed to rebook, but specifically asked for a better room this year. What part of "please give me a better room than last... More

Lovely location. Nice accommodation. Very pleasant staff. Nice and clean except for disabled toilet which everyone uses rather than walk upstairs. Husband is in a wheelchair and had to keep wiping urine off the seat. Evening meal fab but service slow. Breakfast disappointing. Went down at 8.10 am as service was starting and bacon was cold and black pudding so... More

This was a one night stay for an early start for a work event on the morning of departure. Due to work commitments I didn't arrive until approx 9pm and the restaurant staff were very accommodating in still serving me a very welcome hot meal. Check in to the hotel was simplicity and handled efficiently and easily by the friendly... More

They upgraded us to the lodges, which ere comfortable if a little dated, but clean. the hotel is in a great spot within walking distance to the town, with a spa and a hairdressers and they welcom well behaved dogs.

At 160 pounds per night one has certain expectations, especially since the hotel does not belong to the well known chains. Check in at arrival was not very friendly, just getting the job done. Room was pretty comfortable although not incredibily modern. We liked the idea that is was a separate building, so we had a good night rest. Pool... More

The breakfast was lovely. Full breakfast on a buffet which is so convenient for walkers on the go. Eat all you want to really fill up for a big day. Its not just crap either, the bacon and sausages are local butcher sourced and are really tasty! Also, the pool, spa and sauna are great after a day walking. With... More

I stayed for 1 night as part of a business trip, and I couldn't really find fault! The hotel lives very much up to its 3 stars. It's not über modern and it's not that dated (for the price). Check in was effortless. I stayed in one of the lodges and although the room was in the basic side, it... More

We booked this hotel as it looked very nice and well kept from the website photographs and descriptions. In reality, it is 'ok'. The restaurant is fantastic but the room left much to be desired. Free wifi is advertised but if it is important to you, don't stay here as the connection and speed in the lodge rooms is poor... More
