I have been to this hotel for a number of weddings, the most recent being a couple of weeks ago.
The surroundings of the hotel are very picturesque and have great views. The hotel itself is divided into the old original part with lots of antiques and character and the new part that is recently built and up to date. We have only stayed in the new part and it is finished to a high standard with very nice rooms.
The only downside to the premises are the yards around the rear of the building, parts of which can be seen from the rooms, where piles of empty bottles seem to be kept, with others being stored in old oil drums, as well as other debris and rubbish lying around. It gives the place a bit of an untidy feel. We also noticed bottles in some of the flower beds that had not been cleared from previous nights. However, the area with the sun room and patio are very nice and this is where we tended to spend most of our time.
Service is quite good, with the manager and staff being friendly and helpful. The girl who I believe is the owner's daughter is very pleasant and efficient and helps with the running of the wedding. The owner herself seems to be a bit less friendly and doesn't come across too well, we have heard some stories of the owner being awkward towards people planning weddings, and trying to increase prices that have previously been agreed, fortunately the rest of the staff are more friendly.
The food at the wedding meals has been very good, and the offering of seconds is a nice touch, everyone was very well fed. The breakfast the next morning was unfortunately not to the same standard, with service being slow and the cooked breakfast being very limited and overcooked, not up to the standard you would expect for £100 per room for B&B.
So, overall, I would say that the setting is good for a wedding as it is quiet and picturesque, and the evening meals are good, there are just a few rough edges that could maybe be worked on for future to make the overall experience a bit better.
