Stayed in the area before, basic hotels, dowdy surroundings so was expecting much of the same but The Grant Arms was very good indeed, much better than expected for the price paid (weekend package with dinner). Personal welcome by the owner - nice touch.
Room was excellent, well furnished, clean, modern and the bathroom was the biggest hotel bathroom ever and very modern. Food was excellent, great quality, decent choice and served by attentive and friendly staff. Very good lounge, again modernised with fabulous bar selection, couple of TV's, board games, nice area to chill. Do not be put off by the fact this is a "birdwatchers" hotel, it is in a brilliant location to explore the area and offers great value for money. We will be back.
