One night stay as we were in the area for a party. Pleasant enough room but the bathroom was a bit of a let down - odd choice of floor covering (paving??) that makes it look like a dirty exterior floor. Breakfast was ok but we waited ages for teas and coffees - the staff were very nice and the...

A nice hotel and good value. We didn't check in until 10pm on Friday and where amazed that the bar was closed so early. We were told that as there were no customers for the bars so the guy went home. I would have thought that the receptionist could have managed to pour a couple of drinks but didn't offer.(...

We stayed here as a result of a deal sent to my wife as we had stayed there before for an Afternoon tea and Overnight stay with breakfast about 4 years ago. We really enjoyed that stay and so were looking forward to the Cream Tea, 3 course meal and breakfast. As we have a dog, getting away for weekend...

We spent Saturday night here on a bed, breakfast and evening meal package. The staff were very hard working and incredibly friendly. The food was terrific, so much better than I was expecting from this type of fixed package. The breakfast whilst buffet style was of an exceptionally high standard.The whole evening was relaxing and I would highly recommend a...

Just returning home from an overnight stay. On arrival we were a bit disappointed with how run down the outside appearance is, a nice looking building but all the woodwork needs attention. Reception staff friendly enough, our room sadly didn't live up to its superior title, again it's all a bit tired looking, our toilet seat was broken, extractor fan...

We stayed for a wedding and were greeted by friendly and welcoming staff. Our room was large, modern and clean and was ready early so that we could check in. Breakfast was very nice, with a wide selection. With the friendly staff and the hotel not being big it had a very peaceful, friendly atmosphere. The hotel is situated in...

We travelled straight from work and arrived at the hotel at 9:05pm, five minutes after the restaurant stopped serving food. This is fair enough but I expressed a wish for a snack with room service, to be told that wasn't possible. I then asked if I could have takeaway, this was permissible but unfortunately didn't arrive until 11:00pm - beware...

The hotel is well signposted from the main A23 and easy to find. The welcome was warm and genuine from the front desk as soon as we arrived. Excellent organisation meant we were passed on to waiting staff and a swift service continued with the delivery of food and refreshment in short order. The food itself was gorgeous and we...
