We were pleasantly met at the door and then welcomed into a bright and well furnished lounge. Tea arrived promptly and throughout it was delightful.

We booked this hotel for a long weekend mid December to relax before the craziness of Christmas. This hotel is lovely, the grounds and decor are amazing and the log fire is fantastic. we didn't get to sit by it though as there were two people hogging it every time we went to have a look if we could sit...

We had two nights at this lovely hotel. We were made very welcome from the reception staff. Having a personal guided tour and orientation of the hotel, was a nice touch. It is a very cosy hotel with lots of sofas and armchairs in lounges with open fires. Perfect for our stay during cold December days. Our bedroom was very...

We were treated to afternoon tea as a gift and visited in early December. Staff were efficient and welcoming. We did enjoy our experience (we are local to the area and have had teas at many of the local hotels) and would only advise the hotel to consider using loose leaf tea, not bags and have more of a 50:50...

We decided to take a break on our journey and the hotel we had planned to stay in couldn't offer dinner. We looked for somewhere comparable in the area and although the 'deal' wasn't as good, we liked the sound of this one. The room was OK, the bathroom dated, looking like 1980's style. The public areas were lovely and...

We booked a midweek break on a dinner/bed/breakfast deal in early Dec 16. The staff on arrival were very attentive. The manager showed us to our room, which had a lake view, but for a superior room was a little on the small side. The room was clean and comfortable if not a little dated for our taste. The bar...
