Freshly prepared sandwiches & homebaked scones & cakes. The custard creams scones and battenburg were just fabulous! The service was faultless. We could have stayed much longer here,...

I brought two groups to the hotel last week. One Group was International and I wanted to eat in a private room to keep everyone together but you said I must use a fixed choice menu if I was to have a function room.

This is without doubt one of the most elegant hotels in tbe area. Victorian charm with a modern twist. The public rooms are large, comfortable and beautifully furnished. Roaring open fires to relax at. The restaurant - the copper dog - serves excellent, well cooked and locally sourced ingredients. The whisky bar is world renowned and with nearly 800 whiskies,...

I had the gluten free option & totally scored 2 proper sandwiches, full slice of carrot cake, cheesecake & cute little chocolate pots. All delicious. The waitress had a...

“Higher floors have better views. They all seem to look over a gravel parking lot and trees.”
  • This was our room #. Not much of a view, ground floor. However, was just fine!
