We stayed here for 2 nights & found the hotel quiet, not sure if this was because the hotel's position is more likely to appeal to an older age group. It is on the outskirts, accessed down a long lane in a hamlet with no pubs immediately around it so is unlikely to be chosen by younger visitors seeking entertainment.
It would have been more pleasing if the bar had more life in it, but pleasant none the less. I imagine in winter when the log fires are burning the atmosphere is more welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable, We ate in the bar as we prefered the menu here to the one provided in the restaurant; the food was very good, nicely presented but expensive.
The hotel has an old charm to it and the staff were polite and helpful..
The hotel is advertised as 3* and I think this is justified - the prices are more akin to a 4* so expectations are higher.
