A very friendly hotel, superb food reasonably priced, attentive service, reasonably priced, good nights sleep in a comfortable bed but rooms need a bit of attention - clean, but somewhat tired (Room 6)

I've spent a week in this hotel on a business trip. Very nice rooms, friendly staff, good food. The only thing - I would say - could use some improvement would be the floors, they squeak a lot and it's a little bit annoying especially in the evening or at night. The hotel has its own free parking.

We've just returned from a short stay at this hotel. We were warmly greeted at reception and we booked in. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable but rather dated. It had all the essentials...tea making facilities, trouser press, ironing board and iron. The en suite was a shower room which again was a little tired and the... More

Had a family get together with about twenty of us, some local and others who had travelled. We had up to seven rooms booked for various nights over four days. We used the hotel as a base to do some sightseeing and ate in the hotel in the evenings. Nothing was too much trouble for Emma and the whole team.... More

Overall, I have to say I was rather disappointed with this hotel. The building has a very impressive exterior which looks great in the photos, and the restaurant and breakfast area have a nice 'country hotel' feel. However, I found my room extremely small and somewhat tired, to the extent that there was hardly enough room to open my suitcase... More
