We went to this hotel on the recommendation of friends ,lovely scenic area. The room we were given was straight off the car park , very dark and the wardrobe smelt a little damp and it had an air freshener in it . This would probably have been ideal for someone with dogs but not us so I requested a room in the main building ,this was no problem and we were given a lovely one upstairs comfortable , warm with everything we needed.
Somewhat off putting all the reserved notices on the tables in the bar , but they were obviously keeping them for us later . The food at dinner was served there next to an open wood fire , the bench we were sitting on was very uncomfortable but the choice of food and quality was excellent . I had lamb which was perfectly cooked , wine also high quality not expensive . Service excellent if a little fast pleasant people serving . Breakfast was good and served in the dining room which might have been better for dinner the previous evening , would have liked to have the option .We would certainly have a meal here if in the area and will recommend a stay there to all our dog loving friends .
