We arrived with family to stay the night to find the hotel was closed. We had booked for my father's birthday present as we were going to see the Kynren production nearby. Couldn't get into the car park as it was blocked off by old beer kegs. It had obviously been closed for some time as the hotel looked shabby... More

I know it has been taken over since my wedding in November 2009. But anyway... my day there was well organised & done to my specifications. Food was good. Could have done with more bar staff as people were waiting 20 minutes for a drink. 7/10

What alarms me is that Tripadvisor, Expedia, Booking.com and all the... More

We arrived for I night and it was closed. No one around car park empty, no light on. Phone not working or disconnected. We had to drive to Premier Inn at Bishop Auckland to find a room for night. Cant add any more as we couldn't get in.

There was no heating, only electric radiators; and as a consequence no hot water in the taps. Thought I... More

Having eventually parked in the bin bag and old bedding-strewn car park, we checked in at 3pm and were told there was no evening meal service as they couldn't get a chef for tonight -... More
