I stayed here on business for one night, and I wish it was for longer. I booked through booking.com and managed to get a deal for £84.99 including breakfast, which is pretty reasonable for this part of the country and the quality of the hotel.
I arrived at this lovely stone built hotel and was greeted by the owner and checked in, finding out that I had been gived the suite was a nice surprise. The room was very nice indeed, and very well appointed. Wifi is available in some of the rooms, but due to the solid structure of the building with thick stone walls not every room gets it, however they will provide ethernet cables for you to plug into the socket in the wall to get online, so a thumbs up for this.
I didn't sample the restaurant, but if the quality of the breakfast was anything to go by it'll be worth the price, which could be considered expensive, but again it's pretty standard for the area. We decided to go to the local Oxford Arms pub which was about 100yds from the Hotel (turn right from the front door). I will review the Oxford Arms separately, but if you want my recommendation for somewhere alternative to eat and drink in the evening then go, they are so friendly in there, and the food was absolutely fantastic! I was with a colleague from Denmark who remarked that it was the best meal he'd had in England.
All in all this was a very pleasant stay, and I will most definitely be going back with my Wife for an extended stay at the earliest opportunity.
