Stayed here for one night with my husband in a 4-poster room. Most comfortable hotel bed we've ever slept in. We had a room at the back of the hotel and it was so quiet. We enjoyed dinner, breakfast and the honesty bar. The staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you.

Staying away with work can often be a chore but this charming, friendly and very homely hotel broke the mold. Staff were super nice, food spot on and the warm fire was much needed on a cold winters evening. To top it off the honesty bar was genius. Highly recommend staying if
