Reviewed December 1, 2012

I booked the Crofters via laterooms.com a couple of hours before required in order to stay overnight after a nearby wedding. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. The bed was comfy and the decor good. The bathroom was tidy and the shower was fine. We didn't have the breakfast so cannot comment on the food.
This hotel was very good value and we will certainly use it again if in the area.

The staff were very friendly, the bar food was good ( with an excellent choice) and the room and bathroom was spacious. However, all night there was a 'symphony' of clicks and drips coming from the central heating pipes and nothing we did would stop it. Avoid room no.21 !

We dined here a few times and the food is actually very decent for bar food. The dining area (away from the bar area) appeared to be closed every time we went, so I'm not sure if that is even open at all. The bar area is nice however so we ate there. The menu is large enough with some good variety. The food was pretty fresh and nicely done. The drawbacks are being in the bar area because of the noise and the waitress being stretched really thin.

We do get very busy in the Tavern, which creates a good atmosphere. We are one of the few places around where the food is cooked fresh on the premises by trained chefs, which our guests definitely appreciate, Thank you for your comments.

May we just start by sending our apologies to Nicola for the delay in writing this review, we've just been so busy since our wedding.
Nicola, what a fantastic Wedding Reception you organised for us. From the moment we arrived at Crofters to the morning after when we left, the service we received from you and your staff was second to none. The professionalism both from yourself and your staff was nothing short of first class. From the drinks on arrival to the decor of the Reception room to the food and the Bridal Suite we could fault nothing. Besides Nicola being the owner, manageress and function organizer she is such a lovely person to talk to and know. We had many laughs with Nicola right from the 1st time we met her and i for one ( Groom ) cannot thank her enough for bringing so much lightheartedness into what should have been a very stressful time ( especially leading up to my speech ! ! ! ) All of the guests commented on what a beautiful Reception we had and many of the guests who stayed the night said how lovely the rooms were. The Wedding Day we had was absolutely gorgeous and Nicola and her staff put the icing on the cake. May we both just say a MASSIVE MASSIVE and SINCERE thank-you to all staff and especially you Nicola for helping to make our Wedding Day so special.
Our sincere regards
Di and Rob

This hotel is easy to find,has a decently sized car park, and the reception was warm and friendly. We arrived before the registration time, but were treated very well and they managed to clean our room within the next twenty minutes. The bar and restaurant area was very clean and roomy with the service being good. There was a good range of things to eat at reasonable prices, and also a good range of drinks available. The bedroom was quite roomy with a large en-suite incorporating a large bath with good shower over it. The bed was a little squeaky but we had a reasonable nights sleep. The breakfast was very good and was served with a smile. The checkout process was quick and easy. Although we only stayed for one nights B and B we would be happy to stay there again and for longer next time.Overall, this hotel represents good value for money.

Room Tip: Room 11 was good, but on the second floor.

We spent a Saturday night at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfortable and clean although as it was on the road side we could hear the noise from traffic.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and good quality food. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone coming to this area.
Very good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the road can be noisy so ask for a quieter room
