30 years since we last stayed here. We won't be leaving it another 30 before we stay again.
The location of the hotel is fabulous with a number of easy & enjoyable walks nearby. So quiet & tranquil!
In truth we found the hotel a little old fashioned, but that wasn't a bad thing. The service was from a bye gone era, with all staff (the receptionist in particular) being very friendly & attentive.
Room very acceptable, clean, with all required facilities. Good bathroom, plenty of hot water.
No complaints about the evening meal, although not really what we were after. Fine dining rather than hearty meal to satisfy hungry walkers, but that was our problem, not the hotels. What was served was very good.
Breakfast well cooked with good choice.
Definitely a hotel to recommend.
