Booked a weekend stay for my husband's birthday... the hotel markets itself as a luxury hotel but it falls well short. A good average standard is on offer but there was no feel of matching up to the luxury label they advertised. The cooked breakfast was to a good standard but there was no menu as such, just a large... More

The staff where very nice, however when we finally received our food ie chicken casserole and dumpling also venison burger, both where over cooked. Very disappointing. The casserole was No casserole it was a chicken breast with added vegetable carrots broccoli and a Beef gravy, which had a bitter taste to it, the mash was like glue. The venison burger... More

Could not fault the staff or the locals as both made us extremely welcome. Food and beer were good and the room outstanding. Had we not had things planned we would have happily stayed in the bar and chewed the fat with the wonderful folk of Wark. Would certainly go again and recommend it to everyone

Stayed here last night with our son and in laws. Family room was wonderful and my son was overjoyed at the space, especially at having a double bed to himself. The staff were polite, helpful and provided an excellent service from check in to check out. Laura was on the front desk when we arrived and there are plenty of... More

We stayed for another wonderful night in this cosy, welcoming hotel. You cannot fault the accommodation or the food, our evening meal was excellent and breakfast perfect. Just wish you were closer to us as we would certainly visit more often. Thank you for making our stay so special! Amanda U

We arrived hungry before opening time and thank you to the staff for opening the restaurant early and ensuring we were well looked after. We ordered off the Special Boards, the meals were very good. A special mention of the fresh vegetables, very generous portions cooked exactly as we liked them.

Set in the beautiful village of Wark, this hotel has undergone an extensive refurbishment and the interior is lovely. There is only a small bar / waiting area so we were ushered straight through to our table. The menu was standard fare, my partner ordered sea bass and I had 'wild mushroom' pasta. Both meals were ok but nothing spectacular.... More

from the moment we walked into the hotel we were made to feel welcome by the bar staff and guests. The Chef even popped his head out and said hello. The pub/restaurant was clean and pleasant and we booked a meal for 4 the next evening. Could not find fault. Cooked and served to perfection. Large portions, good value, well... More

We were staying here one night after a long drive from London so were not in the most brilliant of moods. When the manager phoned us en route to let us know the restaurant would be closing at 630 (Sunday) and did we want to book, we were initially a bit miffed as had wanted to eat later. But actually...
