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

Excellent friendly service and the restaurant menu had superb choices and the food was delightful, The rooms were clean, tidy and well equipped. The grounds were well kept and colourful. We enjoyed our overnight stay and will probably visit again.

We found this hotel to be a very friendly, evening meals and breakfasts excellent. Rooms were comfortable and clean, nothing to much trouble for the staff. Would recommend a visit. We used the hotel at either end of a canal boat holiday, we were able to leave our car at the hotel, so it made very convenient for us.

Spent a night there while on a wedding nearby. Absolutely fabulous little place. Very spacious en suite room, quite modern and comfortable. Very friendly staff and at a very reasonable price for what you get. Don't be discouraged by the 2 stars only. Excellent!

Staying here recently for two nights. The hotel is set back a short distance from the main road. The gardens are beautifully kept with a small patio area. Breakfast was very nice and my poached egg cooked to perfection. Amy, the young evening waitress was very attentive, polite and looked after us incredibly well, Thank you. Evening dinner menu has...

A beautiful frontage, a great outlook, loads of parking and a fantastic breakfast served by a hugely energetic and bright Jill of all trades. Are you sensing the "however"? The refurbishment has a way to go. The garden makeover at the front looks good. The restaurant area has been lifted (in many respects). this place has huge potential (and very... More

I stayed here overnight whilst away for work. The staff were very friendly and accommodated my late arrival. My room (1) was clean, but did smell a little musty. Bathroom was fine - clean, with nice towels. Breakfast was good, and what you would expect - I didn't have a cooked breakfast though. I would stay again.

My husband and I stayed here three nights. The neighborhood is quiet and we slept well. This hotel is very well-situated for touring National Trust historic properties and gardens. The dinners are exceptionally good. We would be happy to stay here again. The building appears to be a historic inn made out of stone. The exterior walls in our bedroom... More
