Dear Guest

Thankyou for your review. Our new showers are in the modern open plan design, almost like a "wet room". They are quite functional but take a little getting used to, and do elicit some good comment too. We appreciate your comments however and will look into the functionality.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and our staff will be happy to hear your positive comments which we will share.
We look forward to your next visit !

Was a limited, but very pleasant, stay. Location was perfect, service was great and premises are very comfortable. Rooms are, however, looking a little tired (Carpets and bathroom particularly). Looking forward to next stay

A good place to stay, with a very spacious and quiet room. The room I had wasn't especially characterful, but it was clean and had everything I needed. Breakfast was excellent. Ask about the new steak and burger place a few minutes drive away - they do some amazing burgers!

Stayed here for 2 nights end March/April 2014. Room was spacious, very clean, aircon, mini bar, all the mod cons. Enjoyed the view from my window. Check in was very quick, ditto check out. Friendly staff is a big plus. Parking was easy and above all loved the fact that the hotel is situated in a residential area. No bar noise or any noise in fact to keep one from having a great sleep. My only beef is that the cooked breakfast was lacking in flavour. Otherwise the fruit, cereal and yoghurt selection was good. A word of advice for future travellers. Please don't eat at Le Petit in Nahoon. Had one of the most dreadful meals - ever! Horrific in fact

Room Tip: knowing the location now, difficult to get a bad room

Thanks so much for your helpful review. We really appreciate your time taken to review us. Our staff are always appreciative to hear positive comments as they do make a great effort to be friendly and welcoming !

Please can you suggest some little touches to our cooked breakfast...new ideas are welcome !

I stayed there for one night on business.

Check in was very quick.

I was impressed with the size of the room and all of the modern amenities including the mini bar, aircon, safe etc.

I like separate showers as opposed to baths with showers in them - so a big plus for me.

It didnt cost and arm and a leg to stay there - the room was quiet and security was visible.

I suppose a down side is that there is no room serice or restaurant at night- you have to order from the take away menus!

I had an early start so didnt have breakfast although - on enquiry- all the hot food was made up fresh!

I enjoy to stay at the Quarry Lake Inn, It has a very pleasant atmosphere next to the waterfilled Quarry. It is situated in a very quiet area, helping if I have to do some work in the afternoons. The staff is very helpfull and friendly. I would recommend the Quary Lake Inn to any body.
