This was our second visit, this time we brought friends with us. On reading some of the reviews I was worried if things had changed, I had no need to worry. The place was welcoming, good value for money and our friends throughly enjoyed themselves. Would definitely recommend it's a lovely quiet getaway

We stayed one night at this hotel with a Wowcher offer which included dinner and breakfast. We had a warm welcome on a very cold evening. The bedding was clean, fresh and of good quality. We went to dinner after which we gave the chef, David, our compliments on the excellent food. The we sat by the log fire in...

Beware if you stay here. Had a wowcher deal and was conned into having to buy the second days meal so we could use the voucher. If that wasnt bad enough the food was raw and not even an offer of a replacement. Rooms were musty and dirty. Not a place ill ever be rushing back too

We are currently in the process of taking this man to court for refusing to give us a refund. We had a wowcher but we're made to pay an extra £60 on top of this. Our payment was taken twice and the manager is now refusing to return our money. Manager is rude, arrogant and hostile. Worst customer service I...

They honored a Wowcher deal even though I didn't book through Wowcher, and upon hearing it was for my boyfriends birthday bumped us up to a Junior...

Booked an offer on wowcher - overnight stay with evening meal and breakfast for 2. When we arrived the reception staff was very friendly and welcoming and walked us to our room. The service was great at dinner and breakfast - the only downfall I would say was the portion size of the complimentary breakfast. The room was simple but...

Management needs to go on a customer relationship course urgently, very rude and unwelcoming. Went to the hotel room, stayed five minutes and came home. Poor,poor, poor. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go to this hotel.

After reading a number of other recent reviews I was a little apprehensive about what we were letting ourselves in for but was pleasantly surprised. On arrival we found plenty of places to park out the front as most guests had...
