The Heifer never lets you down. From start to finish the friendly and efficient staff ensure your stay is one to remember with top quality customer service. The restaurant never disappoints with superb food and excellent choices of wine. The bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom fantastic. Thanks for another great experience - we shall return and soon!

A brilliant theme roomed hotel. The theme for our room was Delicious chocolate where the décor was all chocolate themed colours with glass dishes and bed side draws full of different chocolates all of which were complimentary. Service, comfort and food all supplied at a very high standard. Highly recommended.

This is our second visit and the food is excellent here. We enjoyed the seafood; lobster; prawns and marinated fish selection type dishes. The steak is special too; the T bone would feed a giant and is very tasty. Service is impeccable and the ambience very good.

As always, a very enjoyable stay and restaurant experience. Food was excellent and staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We stayed in the James Bond themed room this time around - attention to detail, as always, very good with quirky themed items of interest at every turn!
