I stayed at this hotel with my father for one of their sky-watching weekends. Everything was really well organised and all the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Douglas made an excellent host for the weekend and was very enthusiastic and made sure everything ran smoothly. Steve, the astronomer employed by the hotel for the weekend was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and gave excellent talks.
The rooms were comfortable, and clean. We had single rooms at no supplement, and on arrival we were informed that one of the rooms had been upgraded due to a problem with one of the rooms originally allocated. I have never come across a hotel so generous with the number of tea bags, coffee sachets and portions of milk left in the rooms. The only downside is that the rooms on the side of the hotel overlook a passageway or roof - not a problem for us but may be to some.
The food was fresh and of a high quality and the menu gave a good variety to choose from. The cooked breakfast was delicious.
The hotel is close to the town centre and the town is surrounded by beautiful contryside and the roads in the area are quiet. The hotel has a small car park but if full there is plenty of free on-road parking.
The only downside was the one thing outside the control of the hotel - the weather! Everything which the hotel had control over was just right.
