“Marvelous wedding day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

My daughter and son-in-law had their wedding here on 14/04/2014. We stayed at the hotel on the wedding day and the previous day. The wedding package was tremendous value for money with finishing touches supplied by either the Slater's shops or recommended suppliers at very reasonable prices. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff helpful and polite. The food supplied at both the reception and in the country inn was lovely and plentiful. The wedding function room was beautiful and the garden was perfect for drinks and photographs. The whole day flowed perfectly and all the guests were attended to from their arrival prior to the civil service through to the end of the day. We couldn't have hoped for a better day. Thank you all at Slate'rs

Room Tip: The family rooms were spacious and perfect to allow everyone to prepare for the wedding. They had a...

Service was friendly but a little disorganised - ie 7 of us ordered lunch but only 6 meals arrived! - and then fairly slowly. Apart from that I asked for a smaller portion and was advised that this would be adequate which it was and a very good price. Excellent fish, chips and peas for me and my friends all enjoyed their meals. Lovely desserts. It would be worth an extra star should the service improve. It is next door to a small craft and shopping centre which is always worth a look, as there are some interesting objects for sale and some decent clothes.

Slater's Country Inn was our wedding venue in May 2012, and we could not recommend the team, venue, service, wedding planner (Julie Bray), food or the hotel rooms more. We have visited several times again for food since, and always received a warm welcome and delicious food. Today we went with a party of six to celebrate Mother's Day. Again, we had had an exceptional day, thanks to the team at Slater's. The food was delicious (I seriously need to sample the sticky toffee pudding again, as me and my brother have sampled quite a few of these in our time, yet none as divine as today!). The welcome was as warm and friendly as always, the food was so lovely; served hot, beautifully presented and the atmosphere was wonderful. The staff are relaxed and the level of service cannot be beaten. They are attentive, without being intrusive. My family feel so relaxed there and we always know the food is going to be beautiful. Everywhere is spotless, and the Mother's Day menu was excellent value for money. We enjoyed three hours, in a lovely setting upstairs from the bar area. We had a ten month old baby with us, who we felt comfortable to take with us, and a high chair was waiting for us on arrival. We have noticed that sometimes staff sigh when we appear with a baby, but not at Slater's. We were given a lovely welcome and we have all said what a relaxing and wonderful day we have had. A lovely touch was the bunch of daffodils for the ladies following the meal. I know I will always have a special place in my heart for Slater's Country Inn following our wedding, but today was such a wonderful day and I wouldn't have wanted to spend my first Mother's Day, with my mum and mum-in-law, anywhere else. Thanks again to all the staff at Slater's. Looking forward to that sticky toffee pud again already,

Went for lunch had to wait an age for staff to come to us and were not friendly at all ,was a little embarrassed as we had friends with us from out of the area,took quite a while for the meal to arrive ,and not very big portions
and we had been telling our friends how nice it was all in all not a great visit ,don't know if it was an off day but will think twice before we take anyone else there.:-(

My husband and I had a two night weekend stay. After a long drive on slow motorways we received a lovely welcome. Room large, airy, everything we needed, very clean.
Had a meal in the on site restaurant, generous portions and very tasty. Service excellent.
As my husband is disabled mobility is a problem but we were accommodated downstairs for breakfast, everything laid on for us. The staff referred to us as VIP guests as we had the special table by the fire. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Room overlooked garden, very peaceful, no weddings that weekend.
Would definitely stay again. Craft village on site has wonderful boutiques and gift shops

Room Tip: Garden view
