“Our Wedding Reception....”
Reviewed 31 October 2012

We had our Wedding reception here on October the 6th and all I can say is...Fantastic venue, Wonderful Staff, Brilliant Food and very varied in choice! Prior to the Wedding day I mainly dealt with Sharon and Emma who were both always very helpful and ready to listen and answer any queries I might have, everyone was very hospitable and we thought the whole event was very good value.

Myself and new Husband and some Family & Friends all had over night rooms which were both very clean and comfortable, we had a delicious breakfast comprising of cereals, juice, full English & toast along with either tea or coffee which was all good quality.

Fortunately we live quite local and can pop in for a relaxing Sunday lunch or Evening meal and still be met with the same friendliness, hospitality and great food! We look forward to the next visit!

My husband & I had the pleasure of staying here twice during our recent UK holiday. We were so overwhelmed by the service, the food & the hospitality by Emma, Nick, Paul, Zoe & the rest of the staff, during our first 3 nights, that we could not wait to go back for another 4 nights before we headed back home. We have never been anywhere else where we were made to feel so at home. Nothing was too much trouble. They catered for every request. The rooms are extremely comfortable & the whole place is immaculately maintained. The food was amazing & you can taste the care & respect that went into every dish.
We are returning to the UK in 2013 & cannot wait to stay here & see them all again :o)

Stayed for three nights and used the conference room. Staff are excellent and very friendly. Conference arrangements were slick and supportive. Bar grub was very high quality and very good value. I'd happily go back.

We stayed at the Shaw Country Hotel on The 13th of September and strongly recommend the restaurant. The food prices were very reasonable and the quality exceptional and were very pleased with the price and the quality of the wine. However we were very shocked at the price of a small glass of wine and a pint of lager in the bar. We received the best of service and were very pleased overall. The room was what you would expect from this type of hotel however the carpets in some areas could do with a good deep clean and the same applies to the tiles in the shower. Overall we were very happy with our stay and will most likely return.

We were only there for one night but were made to feel so welcome by all the staff that we felt we knew them well by the time we left. The room was large and clean. The decor was a little tired looking but not really an issue. Food was lovely, bar meal in the evening and full breakfast the next day. Would definitely recommend it.

We had a good overnight stay here. Our room wasn't huge, although the bed certainly was. Had a great night's sleep and a top class breakfast in the morning. Yes it's a little tired in places but it's also clean and tidy with friendly staff. Just what we needed - very happy with our choice.

Room Tip: You can pay for a superior room for a few extra £££s.

What a great welcome my family and I got from Emma at this hotel. The service was excellent, the food delightful and the beer reasonably priced. Everything went really well and it's all down to the staff. We decided on shaw when we ad a Sunday lunch here and we were impressed by the food so much we wanted our wedding there. Can't rate it highly enough.

Room Tip: Four poster bed in room 14 is very comfy.
