This is our second stay at the hotel. It is very nice. The staff are lovely. It is clean and tidy. Someone said in a review that there was no cosy bar. Perhaps she stayed in a different hotel to us! There is a lovely snug area as you come into the hotel with an open fire. We sat and drank wine and champagne there. You cannot get much cosier than their snug area! There is a bigger bar/dining area which is very olde worlde and there is a huge bar set in a contemporary dining area. There is also a gorgeous restaurant. The views are lovely. I didn't hear any noise from the road as some people moaned about in previous reviews. I was surprised by the review headed "disappointing". I found none of the grumbles that reviewer found. The view is lovely from the hotel. We will be back for a third, fourth, fifth visit! We paid £130 for a double room, gorgeous dinner and a huge breakfast. A bargain. Food excellent considering the price we paid. Its very child friendly and you can take your dog too! I only have two grumbles - there is no mobile signal which was a pain cos I wanted to keep in contact with teenagers back at home. You have to go into the car park to get a mobile signal. O2 don't reach there at all but Vodaphone do. Its not the hotels fault that you cannot get a mobile signal so maybe I shouldn't have mentioned it! The wi-fi wasn't reliable either.
