I am staying at the Cannards over the next couple of months while working in the area.
The two rooms that I have stayed in at present have turned out to be clean & comfortable. The first room is a very small double & lacks working room. The second room was larger with it's own sitting room area, & this room was considerably larger. Both rooms were quiet with the sleep quality being good. Faily good location for me as it is only 8 miles from where I am working. The rates are very good & the breakfasts & evening meals are substantial, I have yet to finish one completely. The hotel residents appear in the main to be contractors during the week. As always, hotels take some knocks & bangs & there is a constant need for re decoration. The hotel staff & very friendly & the atmosphere is pleasent.
All in all a good value hotel, not the Ritz but excellent value for the rates they charge.

We have been to the canards many times over the past year usually on a Sunday with the in laws. The Sunday carvery has to be experienced to believe it, there is usually a choice of 4 meats and you get a choice of 1 or all of them. There is probably 8 different vegetables with yorkshires and crackling, the following on a Sunday is now so great that booking a table is recommended. Puddings are great too but the problem is fitting it all in.

We also sampled the a la carte menu on 31 October and I had the chicken in a white wine sauce which was delightful. Jase had the burger and it was awesome and that is coming from a burger conninsieur !!

I haven't personally stayed at the hotel but I did put my work experience lady in the hotel for 2 weeks, which she enjoyed and felt safe considering she was 21 yrs old.

I definitely would recommend a visit especially for the Sunday carvery, nice one Jim !

Their web page does not tell you it is on a busy road and there is a large excavation site on the carpark, however this is the least of your worries, it is so filthy and unattractive that we didn't stay to see our room, a drink in the bar amongst the dirty plates and a look at the cleanliness of the place made us look elsewhere.

Just returned from a 2 night break as attending an event at showground. On arrival we received a lovely welcome from the landlord Jim & enjoyed a drink & a chat before being shown to our rooms. We had booked a suite, I had suite c & my friend had suite f, & we were more than happy with our rooms. Lovely large rooms, sky television, plenty of hot water & comfy bed. What more could you need. Admittedly, the road was quite noisy but what do you expect when you are staying on a busy road???? It is clear to see that the hotel is situated on a main road so you are going to experience traffic noise, but I honestly wasn't kept awake at all. We ate both nights & the food was superb. Our husbands were late back from the event but the kitchen stayed open until their return & fed 8 of us top quality food at 10 o clock on a Saturday night! You don't experience that kind of customer service very often. As for the breakfast, I have to say that it was delicious......... lovely quality & well cooked. Well done breakfast chef!
Yes, there is maintenance being carried out, so what.......it didn't affect our stay at all. If you want a pristine hotel go & stay somewhere else & pay the money. If you want a great value hotel, with great food & very pleasant local staff then don't hesitate to book.
Thanks for a great stay & we are all looking forward to returning next year.
