Negatives: Bedroom was absolutely FREEZING, heating didn't work. A member of staff at 2am had to bring us a portable heater which took a long time to warm the room up. She mentioned herself straight away how cold it was in our room! Bed was very uncomfortable and the pillows were lumpy. Couldn't sleep at all. Heating in the bathroom...

Been here a few times for impromptu business meetings. The staff are always going out of their way to help. Plenty of choice on the bar menu, and they cater for special dietary requirements without any fuss.

This is an afternoon tea with a twist and all of it was lovely, from making the reservation through to paying. The food was delicious and plenty and the service was first class. Nothing was to much trouble; we had one vegetarian, requested to be by the fire and requested takeaway bags. Yvette looked after us so well. Thank you...

I and some colleagues stayed here last week for 3 nights. My room (222) was large, very well set out, and was very comfortable. The bathroom especially was well set out, and the room is in a very quiet location...I slept like a baby!Warning: the room was very dark, I loved that as it aided sleep, but I'm sure a...

The hotel reception staff were helpful and friendly. Public areas of the hotel were clean and very good decorative order. Our room 202 was a good size with everything we needed. Bathroom was very attractive with a very deep bath, there was also a shower. The room was very quiet couldn't hear any other guests, very comfortable bed and luxurious...

We stayed on a meal and overnight deal. The room was fine I think, but the mood lighting which the room had meant it was so dark I could not see find the plug sockets. The dinner was lovely and the couple next to us were on a very awkward first date which made the meal hilarious.
