“Fantastic Hotel”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Reception very welcoming and informative. Hotel is spotlessly clean. Good sized comfortable bedroom with everything one might need to hand. Excellent breakfast and dinner. Highly recommended. Attentive well drilled staff.

I have just returned after wknd with my wife and small son George...I have to say that this hotel is so well supported by the staff from the manageress to the serving staff in the restraunt..the staff are a true asset to this hotel..kind friendly and sincere....the food was really good value..we didn't even bother to stray outside to eat anywhere as we were happy to be "at home" in the hotel... Breakfast great no getting up n down served to your table...rooms need updating yes..but for what you pay you can't complain...I will definitely stay here again without question...if nothing else to see all the wonderful staff again...well done all you were all fantastic...mark and Carla...and George.. And thanks for making George so at home.....,,,,!!!!! Lovely...

We were greeted with a beautiful smile and a cheery disposition by a very busy member of staff and all the other guests were having a great time.
We only stayed for the one night but would definitely return.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here and they were always smiling.
Well done guys and Happy Christmas

Stayed here for 5 days on a turkey and tinsel break with 8 friends-the hotel was clean and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and attentive and the evening entertainment was good and an added bonus. The choice of food for the evening meal was excellent and it was always hot and tasty as was breakfast.We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Nice to have a duvet rather than blankets. No view - but I arrived in the dark and left early so it didn't matter. The Christmas party was in full swing when I arrived back after dinner with friends - which all felt very odd in the middle of November but the guests seemed to be having a great time!!! I was a bit surprised to find out breakfast didn't start till 8am but I came down at 7.15 and staff made sure I had tea, cereal, toast, juice and grapefruit slices, and I was offered a cooked breakfast which was nice,despite it not being officially 'open'.

Room Tip: I would imagine all the rooms are quite different because its an old house (or linked houses) so wor...
