Spent 1 night at this lovely hotel in a single room, which was wonderfully comfortable, just what I needed after a hectic day visiting relations in the area. The room was at the back and very quite even though I had the windows open all night. The breakfast in the morning was very good. A perfect place, in a beatitiful... More

What really makes this place shine is the service. My mum and dad have been staying here for years and they have always rated it so highly, with the owners knowing them by name, even remembering their favourite wines and starters! I've eaten here several times and the food is impeccable. You feel like you've been transported back to a... More

Celebrated our anniversary last Friday at Crossways Hotel. Booked in for the night and dinner. Dinner was excellent as always, good choice of starters, mains and puddings together with soup, petite fours and coffee. Wonderful value. Our room was lovely, beautifully fitted out with everything you could desire to make for a very comfortable stay. Traditional English breakfast, fruit juice,... More

Yet another very relaxing night at Crossways, this time in their pleasant and roomy cottage over the road (not as difficult to cross as we had feared), As always the welcome was warm, the bedroom comfortable and the breakfast delicious.

Stayed overnight in the Wishing Well apartment which is across the A27 from the main hotel.Therein lies the rub - a very busy road, a good deal of road noise and on a warm night you cannot comfortably open any windows. Shame, because the accommodation was well-presented, the welcome very friendly, very convenient in terms of location and an excellent... More

We found this amazing B&B by pure chance and we were so glad. A gem of a place with a warm welcome, excellent service and lovely facilities. The decor and cleanliness were perfect and we enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. We wanted to stay again after the first night and David offered us the self catering cottage over the... More

The Crossways welcome is exceptional. I arrived late at night after a long drive but was greeted with warm smiles and made to feel very much at home. The accommodation is homely and comfortable; the food exceptional; the grounds lovely. I will stay again and often I hope.

Our visit to Crossways did not disappoint. A friendly greeting when we arrived and shown to our room. Nothing, it appears is too much trouble to make a stay most enjoyable. We had an excellent dinner on our second evening with all the dishes explained and small portions were given when requested. The gardens are very pleasant and would be... More

Crossways is a lovely place to stay. David was very friendly, the rooms were clean and the breakfast was great. There is free parking, TV, mini bar, tea and coffee facilities with fresh milk. Lovely garden area. It is on the main road but I still slept very well.
