This hotel has a large campsite and it's perfect for tents and carvans. They have toilets and hot showers (1 pound a go) on the campsite. It's in a beautiful green area of England. In the evebing you can go to the hotel's bar and have a hot meal. I'll definitely be back.

The room was outside and maybe in the winter would be a bit spooky. A great view of the countryside, only downside is that it is not far from East Midlands airport and I think the planes must go right overhead at about 12.30 and 1.30 at night. The owner has kept the place very well and the rooms are... More

Our daughters wedding was held here last Saturday and we all had a memorable day. From start to finish the staff worked tirelessly, with a smile at all times. Food at the reception was wonderful and the sausages at the barbecue later, were to die for. A few of us stayed overnight and were really impressed with the size of... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for a family wedding. The wedding was lovely, the food was lovely, occasionally found the staff to be abrupt. The room we had was very spacious for a family of 4. There was a TV (unfortunately the remote didn't work when trying to occupy my children!) Air conditioning (didn't work properly) tea and coffee... More

Our daughters wedding took place last Saturday we had booked out all the rooms. All of the rooms were spotlessly clean, crisp linen and extreme comfort. Double glazing excellent, it was needed as hotel is situated by the airport and race track!! The reception was held in the "pig barn" which can accommodate up to 100 guests. Josie was in... More

I've stayed here before, but that was about 10 years ago! It was nice then, but even better now. I arrived very late in the evening, I had phoned earlier to find out when food stopped...
