We stayed at the Chain Runner for two nights whilst attending a local wedding. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable, with tea/coffee/biscuits and a hairdryer. We had breakfast in the restaurant twice, and evening meal once, all of which was so nice we would come back here again just for a lovely meal. It was a little hidden away and took a couple of attempt to find, even with a sat nav, but defo worth the effort as they have made it into such a lovely little corner with wonderful garden and outside seating. Breakfast was also served up to 11am which is perfect when you have had a night out. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

This is an overall review from my collective experience. I make frequent business trips up to this hotel as I have a project close by to attend frequent site visits. Staff in my opinion have always been polite. From my first visit to my most recent I have never been rudely spoken to. Rooms all tend to be clean and fairly well presented. My only comment was I have experienced a slight bit of musty smell on a couple of occasions, otherwise all is well. Nice reasonable selection for the breakfast menu and food quality is good. There is a nice selection to choose from the dinner menu. Would recommend to anyone travelling for a short stay or weekend trip.

I arrived around 2.30pm thinking I was too early, however when checking in was told that check in was from 2pm!! The reception is in the main restaurant, which was a bit odd, but again, once you've stayed you will know! Heading up to my room, I found the cleaner was still in there finishing off! She was mortified!! I am not a moaner, so dropped one bag in and went back to my car to collect the rest of my stuff. By the time I returned, all was finished. Wendy was so apologetic, which was not needed, but she did give me some extra custard creams!! Thanks Wendy ... great job on the room.

We’re a family of 7 visiting for the first time . We were not told on arrival that you had to order at the bar so we left sitting for a long time before a very rude member of staff eventually told us. When the food finally arrived , 2 main meals (which were wrong) were out before any starters . The same waitress then served another table before eventually bringing the rest of the mains before starters were finished . We asked to speak to a manger as the customer service was shocking . The manger took no ownership, did not apologise and had a terrible attitude. As for the food it was watery microwaved rubbish. I would not recommend this place to anyone .
