We stayed in the ground floor room of "the Granary", which has plenty of space. The bathroom was super modern and we liked the little touches in the bedroom with tea/coffee making facilities, shortbread biscuits and bottled water (sparkling and still) provided every day, not just on arrival.
If you are "light" sleepers you might be disturbed by the creaky overhead floor, but with the standard of room and the extremely well thought out choices for breakfast, it is just a very small niggle.
Would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend, especially as the staff were so welcoming.
You won't be disappointed!

This is a great place to stay. We had a lovely double room with a very comfy bed. Really friendly and efficient staff. Had a great meal in the restaurant and there was a vast choice of hot breakfast food as well as fruit, yogurt, cereals etc. I would highly recommend it.

We spent a night at the Waterfront. Lovely welcome from Fiona who could not have been more helpful during our stay. We had room 1 which is on the top floor at the back, so no views but very quiet which was ideal. Wifi is a bit of a challenge in the room but there is a little courtyard downstairs where you can sit and get good reception. The room is large with a huge bed. We had golf clubs which Fiona was only too happy to lock away for us so we did not have to drag them up to our room or leave them in the car. Breakfast in the Waterfront restaurant was good.

My family and I had a super meal at th waterfront. The service and food were excellent and I would certainly recommend any of my friends to partake of food at this wonderful restaurant. The situation for this eating house is perfect for parking.

We had an overnight stay here. Weather was pretty atrocious but the room was light & airy with plenty of space. Bed was very comfortable too. Plenty of gratis refreshments available in room, ranging from hot beverages to still & sparkling water. Only downsides I would mention were that it was impossible to get online from the room itself. This may have been due to the weather as there was supposed to be a connection but it did not show up in available networks on an iPad - & was hugely unstable on a Hudl. Bear in mind that if the weather is bad, there is no phone in the room, & you may not get a signal on your mobile either - you may need to trudge round to the restaurant if you have any queries, etc. As I say, the accommodation was good, ensuite, & spacious…but you may just want to consider these aspects if the weather is inclement.

Just had a fantastic lunch today Tuesday 13th May. We just decided on spec to go for a wee trip and lunch out and we certainly were not disappointed!!! Food was outstanding and staff friendly and efficient. We will be back well worth the 60 mile round trip for a day out on our holidays.
