Reception was friendly and helpful as were all the staff throughout our weekend stay. Our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Dinner was excellent, as was breakfast. We were attending a birthday celebration over Sunday lunch and tea, all of which could not have been better. We had the benefit of a dinner, bed and breakfast weekend rate which... More

We were attending a 'special' Birthday celebration and just needed one night. We were particularly impressed with the friendliness of ALL the staff we met. From reception to housekeeping, bar & restaurant EVERYONE was so helpful and welcoming. We had a cosy room (views limited in Summer) but very convenient location. The bed was extremely comfortable. The Kippers for B'fast... More

Booked over the Internet and communication was A*. The high tea itself was lovely with plenty of choice and more than enough to eat. The staff were friendly and efficient and we had lovely views of the grounds. Would definitely book again.

Booked this through Late Rooms which was very easy. Phoned the hotel to make a dinner reservation too, very helpful on the phone. Arrived on Saturday to a warm welcome from the receptionist who checked us in and walked us across the courtyard to our room (4). This was clean and tidy with good wardrobe space and lots of hangers.... More

I booked this as a birthday treat for my fiancée. There's currently an offer for an overnight stay with bed and breakfast plus dinner for a reduced price. This makes for a very reasonable deal. We were the only people staying in the hotel and were booked into an executive room in the courtyard. The room was immaculately presented, warm... More

We booked for the evening of 7th January although we have been there several times before this was the first time since it has been under new management. No need to worry if anything it is better now than before. A lot of refurbishment has been done which has given it a new lease of life. New bar area and... More

Friendly staff, clean well furnished room, great food and excellent entertainment. The price of the drinks at the bar are remarkably well priced to say it was new years eve. The food was well done and delivered at good times. It didn't feel as if we were waiting a long time for anything to be honest. Music was really good... More

I have to start my review by saying that the location of this hotel is great but from then on it goes downhill, the room was ok but very expensive for a 3 star hotel, having a shower was like a game of Russian roulette, the water was either boiling or freezing!!, trying to adjust the temperature was near impossible...

We had lunch on Christmas Day in the Crooked Barn restaurant. From start to finish, the day was very well organised, including a staff member showing us where to park. Although there was also a family orientated event on site, the restaurant was peaceful. We didn't feel rushed at any time, although we had one of the first sittings. Staff... More
