Although it was a dreary day when we arrived we were given a warm welcome by Jo and how nice Ben Webster ambient music playing in the background. We were on a Travelzoo break so didn’t expect a luxury room but we were shown to room 7 on the top floor which clearly had been loft space before the conversion to rooms. Although spotlessly clean it was very poorly designed a very small room with a huge bed far too big for the room. There is a chair but impossible to sit in as the roof slope is so severe. The bathroom space is tiny only space for one person more like a cupboard. The hanging space is similar to that provided by Premier Inn so very limited if staying for 3 nights as we were. The walls are paper thin and the slightest noise is audible just lucky we didn’t have a snorer in the next room.
The food at both dinner and breakfast was delicious and how nice to have discreet classical music at breakfast. The menu is small but that is a good thing.
We really enjoyed our stay but wish we had upgraded to a larger room especially after Sarah kindly showed us some of the other rooms.
The hotel is in an ideal position a ten minute walk into Ludlow and a 50 min drive into Hey on Wye well worth a visit.

We took advantage of the Eat Out, Help Out scheme and had lunch here.
The menu was exciting with lots of lovely choices. The food was beautifully presented.
I had the peas, beans and cheese starter and the beef and horseradish open sandwich for main. They were both very reasonably priced and perfect sized portions. And both were delicious.
The other meals our group had looked equally as good.

The restaurant has excellent COVID precautions. The tables are well spaced, there are plenty of sanitiser stations and there is a Q code on each table to scan in case they need to contact you at a later date.
We definitely felt safe here and have rebooked for dinner later this month.

We booked one night at this restaurant with rooms on March 1st as we were meeting friends for lunch in Ludlow that day.

We received a very warm welcome from the owner and a member of staff who showed us to our room.

We decided to have a light supper in the restaurant and glad we did as it was really tasty.

Our room was clean and the bed was very comfy.

We had an excellent breakfast the following morning and left feeling refreshed and happy.

The location is good, with just a short walk into town and good views of the Castle from some rooms.

Well done to the owners for their warm hospitality and efficiency.

We stayed two nights for the Ludlow Spring Festival. We booked 6 months in advance and emailed direct to ask specifically for a room with a bath.

On arrival we didnt get the room with a bath and when we asked why we were curtly told they had received the email but they dont reply if we booked through Hotels.com.

The room was clean, bed comfortable and breakfast was good but we didnt dine there. Location is as good as it looks with a view of the castle over the river and walking distance into town although there is a steep uphill climb to get there.

Negatives were the sullen attitude of the staff at times and a strong smell of sewage on the staircase. The one evening we used the bar they closed the bar promptly and left us to finish our drinks in semi darkness. The TV in the room had an odd menu system which we didnt manage to master fully. The sink tap was confusing to use and once we had figured it the water pressure could have been better.

Overall this was an expensive stay for the experience and we shall not be booking again as we have stayed at much better places in Ludlow. Accommodation is at a premium on event weekends and it is apparent that at this hotel they dont have to try hard to please customers so they don’t bother.

Myself and my wife called the cliffe to book the ultimate romantic package. The owner/manager booked us in and said card details were needed for the booking but no deposit necessary. I called back later on that day with card details which a female member of staff wrote down to pass on to management. Assuming all was booked we had a message 2 days later telling us our booking was now not finalised as card details were not given as agreed later that day. So I call the hotel and somewhat confused ask management what is going on? Seems the girl had wrote the card details down and apparently put them in the safe.also there is a 1st night stay deposit of £135 now required even though the manager suggested otherwise in the previous call. To say the least very unprofessional and a farce just to book a stay there with my wife. Then on our anniversary we arrive to be greeted by a man who is fantastic and very proffessional. We go up to the room to discover the superior suite advertised in the package details online was as simple and as basic as a premier inn or Travelodge. (but more than double the price).(photos attatched)Also the view we had was far from romantic it was of an allotment which an elderly lady kept glancing up into our window from whilst attending the flowers(photos attatched) as we were attempting to get changed. in the picture the optional extras of champagne flowers and chocolates are not what you get they are a cheap version of what is advertised in the picture. Far from happy we go down and express our upset to staff who was very apologetic but needed to take it up with the owner manager. Later that evening we had our evening meal which was very good we thoroughly enjoyed it. And breakfast was good too. Advice would be from us do not pay £285 for a so called ultimate romantic package from here as you will not be happy with the stay. But food is good.we will not be going back ever again to stay there.

Stayed here recently for a two night stay, only 10 minute walk into delightful historic Ludlow - rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable, nice inviting decor throughout the whole hotel and really friendly staff. We were asked if we wanted to eat breakfast and have the dog with us which I thought was a really nice touch. Breakfasts were lovely, everything you could want and great quality produce - the absolute winner for us was the outstanding evening meal we enjoyed, absolutely cooked to perfection and so incredibly tasty - we've eaten in some five star places in many areas of the globe and this was high up on the list of fabulously five star food!! Well worth a visit!

Stayed here for 2 nights on a Travelzoo deal, we had two rooms booked - one standard king and one superior king. Both rooms were good, nicely decorated and clean white bed linen, clean white towels. The bathroom in the standard room was below standard in my opinion, damp smell, mold on the window and very small, it needed a refurb. The bathroom in the superior room was much better. For the price we found the hotel good value, the food was excellent, both the evening meal and breakfast were fantastic. Freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit and excellent quality cooked breakfast and again for the evening meal. Bar prices were expensive but that is usual in most hotels. Staff very friendly and professional. We would stay again. Lovely walk into Ludlow.

A sign on the hotel describes it as a restaurant with rooms and this is what it is. Food, as we discovered in Ludlow generally, is very important and indeed definitely go here for the food, breakfast included.

We stayed at the hotel for four nights and after going out for the day on our first full day upon return our room had been serviced, such as bed tidied, bins emptied, clean cups and more tea bags provided (no clean towels but these were not required as we had hung them up - the sign said to leave in the bath if we wanted clean ones). So far so good. The next day as the towels were now getting rather wet as it was impossible to dry them out and we had used them a few times they were left in the bath to be replaced. Upon return from a long day out ready for a nice shower before dinner we enter our room and the towels are still there, the bins have not been emptied, no clean cups, only one teabag left, almost out of loo roll etc. etc. I had to go down to ask for clean towels and clean cups but at that time I hadn't realised how low on loo roll we were and was too embarrassed to go down a second time to ask for some more. We therefore only had hard tissues to use and it really affected my sleep that night as I was quite distressed. I did mention this problem on checking out but they said I should have been asked when checking in if I wanted the room serviced but I was not but that was not the point, if there is a sign saying how to get your towels replaced that's what should happen, guests can't second guess that there room won't be serviced. How can you get your full bin emptied and more toilet paper and clean cups? Really it would be better to go self catering as this is not four star hotel treatment to leave your guests distressed and unable to even sort themselves out.

Further comments - The bed is very large, firm and I found very comfortable with firm pillows too. The windows could do with black out blinds as they let in the light and one small window only had a net curtain. The landing light is on all the time as so lets in light under the door. A movement activated light would be better. Some black mold starting to form on windows, this is a definite no for me and should be dealt with promptly at the first sign between visits. The radiators only seem to come on late afternoon into the early evening and not at all in the morning when it felt chilly. There is therefore a problem getting towels dry and a large towel radiator in the bathroom would be better.

Room 14.....very very cold, especially the floor on your feet.
13amp electric sockets ridiculously sparse, one overloaded socket under the TV, the other at only one side of the bed.
The smallest kettle I’ve ever seen must have cost all of £3. Hair dryer very odd. Two bob clothes wardrobe . Nice en-suite bathroom.
This room is very small with an en-suite , it is a room (no kitchen) within an outside shared bungalow, of which the other room (No.12) is let out separately.
One of the smallest rooms we have ever stayed in, would not recommend.
The description is mis leading it is not a one bedroom cottage, I would have booked a room in the main hotel, as is 25% cheaper , makes no sense at all .
None of this is befitting of the Hotel itself. In hindsight we should have booked a room in the main hotel not the cottage. Had a lovely Sunday lunch , a very pleasant atmosphere.
Breakfast was very nice .
Very pleasant staff , nice bar area.

We visited this hotel as part of a charity cycling event from Land End to John O Groats. Unfortunately, we were met with a very hostile reception from the lady who we believed to be the manager. The lady wouldn’t let us store our bikes in the hotel even though we had confirmed this before hand. At first, she offered us the cellar but at a charge of £20 for all 4 bikes. She then quickly changed her mind and said it would be free if we had dinner in the restaurant that evening before bizarrely telling us there were no available tables! After a very uncomfortable conversation and the threat of leaving our bikes and equipment outside for the night, she reluctantly agreed to store our bikes in the cellar for £40. Even then she put a curfew on the times we could have them back. It was such a shame because most of the hotels we had planned on the route were budget or shared accommodation but we chose this hotel as the one exception that would be a treat and we knew family and friends would be joining us at this hotel to give morale support. Ludlow is such a lovely place and the hotel grounds were stunning. It’s bad to have such a sour taste but everywhere else have been super friendly. I suppose price doesn’t guarantee class.
