We took my parents away for a couple of days midweek break. The village itself is very pretty and offers some great dining options, pubs and scenic drives. The rooms are standard, comfortable and clean. Breakfast in the function room was good, but constant delays with food supply to buffet. Evening dinner in the bar was busy, very tasty if...

Excellent staff and stay. This is the second time we have stayed at the Nesbitt Arms Hotel and each time it has been a great experience. There were 16 bikers in our group and the hotel staff made everything very easy from booking to checking in and providing the three course evening meal. They even organised covered, secured car parking...

In a quiet village the Nesbitt Arms is a lovely hotel with attentive knowledgeable staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable with teapots and hairdryers in them. The TV was small but there were only a few programs to view. Free wifi was helpful. Restaurant included very nice complementary breakfast, including friuts, yogurt, hot and cold cereal, eggs and bacon and...

Wonderful Stop for Lunch or Dinner! Establishment is clean, waitstaff attentive and both the lunch and dinner menus offer a wonderful selection for all tastes. Be mindful, if you leave hungry, it's not the result of small portions! We enjoyed a leisurely lunch and made reservations for the next evening for dinner. Dinner wasn't a disappointment at all. Again, a...

I can't speak for other rooms, but as a single, my room seemed to be more basic than others' rooms. As is usually the case, the room had some typical European quirks: separate hot and cold water taps, a high step tub, little, if any vanity space in the bathroom, hairdryer tethered inside a drawer, no bathroom outlets, and no...
