Stayed here a few times over the past year whilst local with work. Whilst in need of some investment and improvement in the rooms, it has always been a welcoming experience and stay. I've had no issues with staff or service - don't often end up having food but when I have, there haven't been any issues. Got an email... More

I stopped here for two nights in September whilst on business when I arrived there was no one on reception. When I finally got my room it was dirty with cables all over the floor ,the bedside switches were at the bottom of the bed so you had to get up to switch lights off. The bathroom had loose taps...

On recommendation from friends, my wife and I and two friends visiting from the USA booked dinner at The Wellington Arms. The appearance of the building is quite appealing and we were shown to one of about 10 tables in the room by the bar. We were greeted with a request for our drinks order. From here it seemed that...

Stayed several times over a few weeks and enjoyed the stay, nothing to shout about but just fine. Well facilitated rooms if not a little dated, although on one occasion didn't have all the shower toiletries which was disappointing. TVs are very poor considering the stature of the hotel. Didn't eat much in the hotel for dinner as it was... More

Really good place to stay, pleasant, friendly and efficient staff, nice comfortable clean room with power shower and the food and service were both excellent. All this at a more than reasonable price. Real scrambled eggs for breakfast not the powdered rubbish you often get at mid priced hotels. Some lovely countryside out the back also and easy access to... More

I had a room at the front of the building, which was ornate, large mirrors, and a huge bed with a mattress that was a good 8-10” too small for the base. A bathroom fitted with (again) decorative and expensive fittings. However, the shower splashed water all over the floor, as the bath itself was small. All very nice, if... More

From receptionist to barman, every single person provided warm and friendly service. Great selection of drinks at the pub and events bar, comfortable rooms and plenty of parking. Beautiful building and just enough original features vs mod cons.

We have been to the Wellington Arms before and have been pleased on both occasions. The decor is quite old fashioned but we like that in contrast to the many places that have now been modernised all to a similar design. There were four in our party.
