Stayed here for 3 nights with the 3 nights B&B & 1 evening meal offer. We arrived on a Thursday night, hoping to have the dinner in the restaurant that night. We were told at reception that the restaurant was closed on Thursday night and we could eat in the bar. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a Superior Room which was much appreciated.
I had looked forward to the meal as I heard from others that the hotel is Coeliac friendly. The menu had notations for which items were GF. The menu stated that the chips were gluten free but when I went to order them the waitress (luckily) told me that they are fried with other foods. This would be unsuitable for any coeliac and if the hotel continues this practice I would suggest that they remove the GF from the chips on the menu. Overall the meal was nice.
We had a wedding in the hotel on the Friday and the food was very very good. A few people had commented how slow the bar service was on all the nights we were there.
The breakfast was ok, nothing special. The staff were very friendly at breakfast.
My only real complaint was the poor water pressure in the shower.
I would advise to not go near the petting farm if you have a weak stomach, very strong smell! Also price of drinks was very expensive.
