“Most enjoyable stay”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

I stayed over at a wedding of my niece and the venue was really good
Nice areas for photos both inside and out and great attention was given by the staff at all times
There were 20 of us staying and we all had a great day and night and there was no pressure to vacate the rooms or premises that you usually get at these venues
Keep up the good work and thanks for looking after my niece and all my family

£14.50 for 1 course and it was worse than a wether spoons chain.
Lamb was tough like frying steak.
Fish had bones and same seasonal veg as lamb dish. Over sweet and acidic red cabbage with fake tasting mash.
Wad going to have the 2 courses for £16.50 but thought better of it.
A real shame as the exterior is beautiful and inviting. Inside was clean looking but dated and too bright and clinical. Looked like a conference lunch, not a quaint historical experience.
Staff were lovely so a real shame.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking your time to review us. We do appreciate guest feedback, whether positive or negative as it gives us a benchmark to evaluate our performance.

I am pleased to hear that you thought staff were friendly and hard working.

I am disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your meal, as our chefs source fresh food locally wherever possible and take great pride in the food they produce. On the night in question, we had an offer of £18.50 for a three course meal in the restaurant

I am sorry, that you did not feel this was the case on this occasion.

Many thanks

Stayed overnight at the Watermill on 29th Dec2012 had nice cosy room overlooking the Hamils, coincidentally same room we had on our last visit, very clean with hospitality tray and clean en suite facility with walk in shower. Lovely toiletries provided. Staff are very friendly, excellent chef breakfast was delicious. we will be back next time we are in our old home town as it is so convenient to town centre and travel links.

Room Tip: CHoose room 110 if you like waterfalls.

My mum and I stayed at the Watermill on the 10th Jan as we had travelled back to attend a family funeral. We found the accommodation a little dated but felt it was still in keeping with the building. The rooms were beautifully clean and comfortable. The staff however, were the friendliest and warmest around. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we were made to feel like honoured guests. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in going back there again. The Watermill is excellent value for money, try it yourself and see. A big thank you to ALL the staff. Lilian & Grace.
