I popped in for a quick lunch while in the area; didn't stay overnight, so can't comment on the accommodation.
First impression: gloomy. Only the bar seems to be open at lunchtime, and the gloominess is caused by dull lighting and a lot of dark oak panelling. Second impression: chilly; the central heating did not seem to be on (5 degrees outside, not much more inside!); so, not a place to take your coat off.
However, service was pleasant and efficient. From an extensive, well-priced menu, I chose sweet chilli pork with rice. Plenty of meat, and the sauce was well-flavoured. Beers are from the Hall & Woodhouse selection; my pint of Badger was excellent.
