Had a cosy room tucked away at the end. Facilities in the room were good and the breakfast, dinner and bar were all excellent. The town is quite small but some good shopping as well as places to eat. Try the river walk to work off all the food!

We wanted to have a special meal to celebrate the 30th birthday of our son Tom. A party of eight of us were extremely well looked after and the meal was superb. It was for me the very best food I have ever enjoyed. Everything was beautifully presented and mouth-wateringly amazing. Thank you to all concerned. Marjorie York

The more formal dining area has been adjusted to include three tables that are v dog friendly and even have lead clips on the skirting boards.

A return visit did not disappoint. Thoughtful extra touches set this hotel apart, luxury bath products, fresh milk, homemade biscuits, fluffy towels and bathrobes and a small bottle of wine to welcome us back as returning guests. (What they didn't know was it was our 38th wedding anniversary, so it was very timely too) . We love this place and... More

We booked this hotel on recommendation by a couple of friends for our wedding anniversary and it was well worth the visit! We stayed for two nights and found the room and bathroom were both very clean and comfortable. There were nice touches with the homemade shortbread in the room and the dressing gowns in the bathroom.
