This is an old fashioned hotel with a lot of character and good atmosphere, partly due to the amazing staff. My daughter and I stayed with my two year old grandson and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would like to convey particular thanks to Heidi, Marion, Adam and James. The food was top-notch, of exceptional quality and...

I stayed with my partner in a four poster room on the weekend 21st/22nd April. The room was absolutely fabulous though in common with many hotels you don't get a fridge. An...

Wowcher deal which was good value to include scones and tea, a glass of champagne, three course meal off the a la carte (although the did run out of a number of the more desirable items and breakfast. No fruit in our room though but this may have been a management decision as I wasted 2 hours on the phone...
