We stayed at this hotel for one night on the 19th November. The accommodation was excellent at a reasonable price. We ate in the restaurant and found our evening meal and breakfast were good. The staff were helpful. We had a problem when the room heating didn't come on which was rectified quickly after we reported it. I would fully... More

Stayed here recently on a business trip as the location was good for my meetings. The check in was slick and the receptionist took time to show me to my room... always a good sign. The room was spacious and modern. The shower with a dinner plate sized head promised a powerful warm experience but the flow would have struggled... More

With recent refurbishment of the bedrooms and as a regular visitor over many years I can say that I would recommend the Griffin to a traveler. The place has a homely atmosphere with a good pub, friendly staff and the food's not bad either.

I was attending a training course at this hotel, so stayed the night before. The room was lovely, recently refurbished I believe, and lovely modern bathroom.

Me and my partner eat here regularly. Whether it's in the pub or the restaurant we are always delighted with the food and the service! I absolutely Love the place and would highly recommend it! In the colder months they have a lovely log fire which is so cozy. They have recently updated the decor too and it looks great

Apparently this placed has recently been redecorated, it looks ok, pity the food cannot be given the same rating. The drinks are very expensive - £6.69 for a large glass of Chardonnay! I ordered the slow roasted pork belly, my husband the gammon. The gammon was small, loads of fat on it and overcooked - the pork was ok but... More
