“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

Although travelling alone I was upgraded to a double room - quiet and very comfortable. The young lady who checked me in was extremely pleasant and efficient. Good service at breakfast although they were busy with a coach party. Have stayed a number of times and all have been good. Some biscuits in the room would have been nice, but only a minor gripe. Search around on the internet for a good rate that includes breakfast, not all do.

Stayed here for a friends wedding. The grounds are lovely, a perfect setting for a wedding. The room was of a good size with a wonderfully large and comfortable bed, the bathroom was also a good size although I think there may have been a problem with the drains as there was an occasional bad smell. The shower was brilliant, really good water pressure - something you don't always manage to get when staying away from home.
Food and service were both excellent.

Very nice hotel, only a mile from town but set back from the road and lovely grounds so that you feel it is more of a countryside setting. Would recommend walking from the hotel into town as it is a lovely stroll through the park and along the river before you reach the Quayside, then the Cathedral is just up the hill 5 minutes from there. Great little craft shops at Quayside, we particularly liked the metal work artist who was selling loads of great things for the garden. Breakfast at the hotel was yummy and we ate dinner in the bar which was also very good. Staff very friendly and lots going on at the hotel which gave it a nice atmosphere.

Only after booking my stay did I find out it was room only.
This hotel is tired, it needs some TLC. A lick of paint would go a long way. Our room was comfy, the bed very good but we were expected to share a shower gel and shampoo. The window frame, painted white, was black with dirt.
I will not be making a return visit to this, 4 star ?, hotel

As promised in my first review, we returned here again for a special weekend away. I was worried on arrival that we might be neglected as there was a wedding reception in progress, however, this couldn’t have been further from the truth! We had a nice room – further to the back of the hotel than before… I guess this was because of the noisy wedding reception which was a thoughtful touch. We returned late and decided to have a couple of drinks in the bar. Despite the party in the function room we were still well looked after and not at all neglected in the bar. Breakfast in the morning was busy (full of wedding guests) and a couple of mistakes were made with my breakfast. These were taken care of and eventually I enjoyed a very nice breakfast.

The reason I love this hotel is the staff. They are helpful, friendly and welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble for them. A far cry from the snooty and stroppy hotel staff I have encountered in many other hotels in the past! A small incident like breakfast can very quickly turn me against a hotel when I get attitude from the restaurant staff – here it is impossible to get angry with or feel talked down to by the restaurant staff – they are lovely.

I look forward to returning again soon!
