“Disappointing single room”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

On previous visits I have been lucky enough to be upgraded to a double room and been more than happy. This time however I was allocated a single in the roofspace which was not to the same standard. It was decidedly chilly, the mattress was pretty worn out and the wifi did not stretch that far. A shame because the service was otherwise great and the food as enjoyable as ever, especially the cooked breakfast which is amongst the best I have tasted (though there was not much else on offer).

Room Tip: Avoid single rooms in cold weather

What a great night the 14 th February 2013 the place was full as was expected but we never felt rushed or over looked & very romantic
We love the place out most favourite place to eat or even go.
Lucy and staff are just the best and Frank you are a star :)
Great food great friendly staff great location
We have been a few times now and not once have ever been disappointed yes there is a chance of a mistake but if there have been any tiny ones its sorted in an instant without any fuss customers are always put first and with a friendly smile.
As you can guess WE LOVE THIS PLACE

We headed for Valentines dinner and the whole experience from start to end was great. We started off with a bottle of bubbly in the reception in the comfy seats by a very toasty wood burner. We headed in to the restaurant and ate the set menu, which was the only choice that night although there were 3 selections for each course. My wife is a strict vegetarian and there was a selection for her too. The dining room was busy, but we were seated a discreet distance from the other diners.

My only criticism is that the drinks were not poured for us apart from when they are opened. The wine was not opened at the table, which I don't like. The wine menu was adequate and was handily split in to easy digest sections.

Ed & Lucy have done wonders with the Hall and we will certainly be heading back.

Sensibly priced and good service.

First to the up side - dinner was very good altough a little pricey, as was the breakfast, Service from the staff I encountered was also very good. However although on finding my single room did not have a shower I was moved to a double (at additional cost) with no issue, when I did go to use the over bath shower I was unable to get it to provide me with an acceptable temperature/sufficient power. When I went to shave the water into the sink was warm at best. The room was comfy enough and of average size. At £75 + £12.50 for breakfast this is not good enough thus I would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Business travelers stay clear of single rooms if you want a shower.

We were met by a roaring log fire in the entrance hall and greeted like old friends despite it only being our second visit! This small family friendly-hotel is Lincolnshire's best kept secret. The old hotel is tastefully decorated and our bedroom had recently been renovated to a high standard. We had dinner and the food was absolutely first-class with the staff really attentive without being over bearing. The following morning the breakfast was equally good. We will certainly be back as this has to be one of Lincolnshire's nicest hotels.

Warm welcome,all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Lovely room and despite it being an old building with the shutters closed and the radiator turned up it was warm. Beds really comfortable. We were at a funeral and the staff were most understanding letting us get into our room early to freshen up before the ceremony. The food was excellent and the prices for drinks etc seemed reasonable by today's standards. Bit put out by the 2% charge for credit card, I think that is unnecessary. If ever in the area again I would certainly return.
