I had a pleasant experience, such a beautiful hotel and a lovely place to bring my parents. Amazing service from a young lass, kayleigh. Her personality shone through with not only us but as we noticed with every table. One thing that let the hotel down was that another young lass claimed to be assistant manager but she wasn't as...

Booked here on the recommendation of a former employee whom we met at the Carey Arms, ...and what a good recommendation. Stayed in a river view room - fabulous size, two french windows overlooking the river and lots of space. All staff were really helpful and friendly and interested. Despite visiting (inadvertently) during a folk and beer festival (hooray!), we... More

I've been in here a couple of times with my partner for a few sociable hours at a time. We decided to have bar lunch in here one Sunday afternoon...you have to order at the bar and tell them your table number, originally we were sat outside but typically it started raining hard so we all dived inside so had...

The Wedding breakfast was well officiated with good organisation of the waitresses and the food was outstanding, an unusual menu but for once as a coeliac I had exactly the same menu as the rest of the guests and thoroughly enjoyable.The evening...

I recently stayed with a group of friends. The staff were all excellent, the rooms clean and very comfortable. The food in the restaurant and at breakfast was very good. I would definitely return. One of our party is wheat intolerant and nothing was too much trouble for the staff to ensure that she was catered for.

Staff are rude, coffee cold. Can't make a floater coffee so don't even bother asking for one. They cannot cope with a busy bar. The coffee that was served to us on first visit was almost chucked at us! Second visit the guy at the bar told me he was too busy to serve up a coffee! And third visit... More
