Stayed for one night with a work colleague whilst on business in the area.
Was a little sceptical following reviews read concerning previous owners who left last year but went ahead and booked due to its proximity to where we were working.
Any fears were unfounded as it is obvious that the new owners have worked hard to turn the place around.The building is a 16th Century coaching house and has been decorated and maintained to a very good standard. Three roaring fires in various rooms around the bar area and reception were a welcome sight considering it was -8 outside with fog and snow when we arrived.Furniture and decor added to the cosy feel of the reception,bar and eating areas.
A cheerful and efficient check in and we were shown to a twin room which was excellent, clean and warm with en suite bathroom and complimentary White & Co smellies, Good quality tea and coffee facilities in the room along with bottles of water and biscuits.
From arrival and checking in to departure the following morning I found the staff pleasant, cheerful and helpful. We had drinks in the bar area and a light meal which was great. The menu looked quite extensive and mouthwatering although we didn't have any of the main courses.
Good nights sleep on comfortable beds and then an extensive breakfast menu from porridge to eggs benedict saw us choose a full english which was superb. Served by Rachael who was extremely cheerful at 7.30am despite the fact that she had still been working the previous evening when we retired at about 11.30pm !!
Altogether a very pleasant one night stay in a very pleasant environment.Plenty of outdoor seating which I imagine is great in the summer months.
Booked through Laterooms 48 hours before, cost £100.00 for twin bedded en suite room with breakfast.
Thoroughly recommended if visiting the area and would have no hesitation in staying again.
