I'm a picky hotel stayer and there is normally something I don't like. Woodlands was bloomin' perfect! The room was scrupulously clean, beautifully decorated with enough furniture to hang clothes, store shoes etc. The team taking care of us couldn't have been more helpful and coped with a change of room booking brilliantly. The garden was beautiful and the entire...

Good hotel with helpful and attentive owners made for an enjoyable stay. Comfortable bedroom and convenient location. Don't be put off by somewhat over-the-top pink accentuated external architectural features.

Have just had a night at the woodlands and I was made really welcome. A lovely single room and I although I was early I was able to check in. Wonderful breakfast with plenty of choice. Great to find a family run hotel. The woodlands is a very old, interesting building and very convenient for the town

We took our three dogs with us and were given one of the larger rooms downstairs, perfect as it had masses of floor space and patio doors to enable us to take the dogs straight into the garden. The hotel was decorated and furnished to an extremely...

Just come back from our stay with family celebrating a birthday. Made welcome straight away and shown our room even though it was before the check-in time of 2pm.

Recently spent 4 nights in this lovely hotel. What a treat!! I can't speak too highly of our stay at Woodlands. The public rooms, the dining room, the beautiful entrance hall and landing area - the attention to detail in the decor is just perfect. The same goes for the bedrooms - the ones I 'peeped' into were so beautifully...

Thank you for your kind review, I am happy you enjoyed your stay with us. You may however have misread our departure time, as this is 1030 hrs, which generally allows all to depart without rushing from breakfast. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Dan
