Recently spent two comfortable nights here and very much appreciated the warm welcome I received at this comfortable, family run hotel. Genuine, unpretentious hospitality - a very pleasant place to stay.

Lovely, comfortable hotel to meet family for an 80 th birthday celebration. Very warm, lovely breakfasts and nothing was too much trouble. Very welcoming , I would thoroughly recommend it. The superior rooms are a great size and some of the rooms are on the ground floor, we found this ideal for one of our family who has mobility problems.

Once we'd parked in the Woodlands car park, that's where the car stayed. Everything we needed was in walking distance. Our room was gorgeous, luxurious and very clean. The bed was heavenly, I felt I was sleeping on a cloud! The garden is charming and we could have stepped out to it from our room, being January was the reason... More

We held a Christmas Lunch at the Woodlands. Food was lovely, good selection of vegetables and well cooked (not pre-sliced meat but proper turkey); nice trimmings too. Christmas Pudding with the Brandy Cream was lovely. Pretty hotel with a relaxing and congenial atmosphere. Dan & his staff were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended. Good coffee... More

My wife & I were visiting family for Xmas and we could not have chosen a better place to stay for the period. We stayed here a few years ago under previous owners and we have noticed the reviews upturn quickly under Dan & Megan in the last few months. Having now sampled their hospitality, we can understand why the... More

We hired Woodlands for our wedding celebrations. From day one right through to our wedding weekend hosts Dan and Megan were professional, friendly and extremely attentive. They went out of their way to help, designing menus, helping with decorations and giving us free reign of the whole hotel. Fabulous unique accommodation and wonderful food. We also had a night before... More
