We stayed here last weekend to celebrate my brother's birthday. Although the decor in the room looked a little tired, it was clean and enjoyed an amazing view of the luscious garden. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and will undoubtedly go back for another visit soon.

Arrived early and we were able to leave the car in the hotel car park. Hotel is nice if a little dated but was fine for us. Staff were polite and friendly. Breakfast was good and the breakfast staff were extremely efficient and friendly. Bar area nice and cosy. Would have no problem staying here if in the area again.

I attended a conference at the hotel and my husband came with me for a weekend away. We stayed for a very pleasant three nights. Our room was large and had a huge opening window which made it nice and fresh for what was very good weather,no rain! The staff were very welcoming and friendly with plenty of useful information...

We always try to phone guests whom have booked a room when there is a function taking place . Am very pleased that in most instances we are able to facilitate a room move to a quieter area of the building and that worked for you . Thank you for your review .

We discussed the menu and chose from a good selection of options priced very reasonably. The birthday celebration could not have...

Breakfast is the best , with as you say local sausage and wonderful field mushrooms , rather than those insipid little button ones . Turf Bar and Bistro menu will be changing shortly to enhance the spring produce .

Four of us had Sunday lunch and we were all very happy with the food and service. The menu was varied and we were not rushed. All very lovely and to top it off there is a pianist playing throughout the meal. Can't wait to go back.
