We got a good deal for one night including breakfast and we were not disappointed. The room had been recently refurbished, really comfy bed, lovely shower and towels. Breakfast was good quality and plentiful with it being a self service buffet. Staff friendly, will definitely stay again.

Stayed 2 nights for a wedding. Room was lovely and clean and had everything you'd want including the TV which had free Sky sports ! Didn't eat in the restaurant/bar but others did and it looked really good. The breakfast was one of the best I've had, cooked fresh and hot with unlimited continental. All the staff worked very hard...

As we usually do we met up with our very good friends for a new years eve dinner/dance. We live quite a distance apart so we just select a hotel at random and take our chance. This proved to be an excellent choice. The food was excellent, a good disc jockey playing a variety of music and a sociable crowd...

I stayed here last night, whilst working away on business. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. It's a fair old walk back into town, but probably not a bad thing really. Will certainly be back for sure.

I stayed at the hotel over New Year and the beginning of January. The stay was comfortable and staff were accommodating. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of choices and the dinner menu was substantial as well. Staff were friendly and present throughout the hotel. I'd definitely recommend a stay here.

The main house rooms are particularly good with a modern extension that is OK. The breakfast is a highlight and the restaurant is excellent. There are a number of meeting rooms that are available for private dining and are quite atmospheric. The bar is not bad but the modern decor is slightly out of place. Overall this a reasonably priced...

Turkey and trimmings and Xmas pud was all fine but the soup was overspiced. Service was quite slow clearing the main course dishes. I would like to try this restaurant again when it isn't Christmas meals.
