Had our Christmas Function here on the 16th December 16. We were a group of 17. This must be one of the nicest xmas meals I have had in a long time. The soup was delicious and piping hot. The main came out on hot plates (10/10 for that). The vegetables all fresh, as well as the roast potatoes, there...

We had a family Christmas lunch for a second year running. Everything looked festive and elegant when we arrived (all 48 of us). The food and service was excellent and our few special requests were provided. The wine was good too. We weren't asked if everything was OK every few minutes but if we needed to speak with Emma or...

Booked this hotel for my 50th Birthday Bash! Approximately 65 guests were fabulously attended for by Emma and her wonderful staff. Everyone was made extremely welcome, the food was amazing and the band and photo booth were catered for with the minimum effort on my behalf. The staff are all attentive, without being predatory and the evening was enjoyed by...

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.

Visited this hotel for a big family birthday celebration. How they managed to serve three courses to 50+ people with consistent fantastic quality I really don't know. The food was exceptional, wonderful taste, piping hot and I saw a lot of clean plates. The staff were very friendly and helpful and were well led by the owner. The hotel is...

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...
