I recently travelled here with my partner which wasn't too far of a journey to us, when we first arrived we got offered to upgrade our room and were shown in to both rooms, we took the upgrade, the rooms we stayed in were very girly, which i didn't mind to much, i've worked in a erotically different hotel before so i know you have to be open minded, everything was clean, working and couldn't really complain. First we went downstairs to the bar area and had a drink whilst chatting to the bar staff, which all but one were very chatty and up for a good convo. We then went for a drive around the local area and there is nothing there, so it's a good job the hotel is nice!!! The bar area and restaurant are all very nice, for a 3* inn this is defiantly worth more than that. After our drive around we went back to our room to get ready for dinner, the food was amazing, really nice, we had 3 courses each, and had a taste of everything, i had the duck breast for starter, which i was a little disappointed by, as i didn't get as much duck as i would have wanted with everything else, but it does say duck breast, that is what you get so i didn't say anything it's my personal opinion. Mains were great and so was dessert!! The meals were fairly priced, under £60 each for 3 courses and a drink, which is average for everywhere. We stayed down after dinner drinking with locals and chatting to two of the owners until close. The bed was extremely noisy just for sitting down on, but didn't bother us too much, in the morning we went down for breakfast and were treated extremely well, nothing was too much trouble and had an amazing breakfast!!! If we come back next time we would try one of the less girly rooms. Had an amazing little get away.
