We were a party of four (granny, mum, baby and dog) and our lovely room was in the eaves. There wasn't a lift, but the staff kindly offered a space for the pram downstairs. Our room was well appointed and very cosy. there's wasn't a bath, just a shower, but this was just a minor issue. The hairdryer had gone... More

On arrival we were greeted by a friendly staff member and then informed that we were in the annexe. My booking e-mail did state that the hotel was situated over two... More

Came here for a meal and ordered steak and ale pie and chips. Gave up trying to cut the fat off the steak as (romantic as it was) candlelight is not the best to see by!!!!!! Chips were pretty hard and dry so all in all quite disappointing

My answer would have been no. We arrived at 6:15pm, wanted to eat and go to the Enchanted Forest on the 8pm bus, we were told the kitchen was really busy and it might take up to an hour to get food out to us!!! We were advised to use Caffe Scozia across the road and up the street, which... More
