I had had glowing reports of this hotel from a number of birdwatching friends and so booked a four-day short break. It exceeded my expectations . The Hotel holds itself out as a 'Birdwatching and Wildlife Hotel' and it is!

I stayed a single night B&B on my own, turning up midweek with no reservation. Large twin room with smart decor and recently renewed bathroom. Comfortable, TV and tea-making in the room. polite service and a superb choice for breakfast. Would definitely stay here again when in the area; despite my lowly room rate I felt very well treated.

We had a midweek short break. The room was very comfortable and very clean. We found that the staff were very helpful and polite. The food was simply first class, the only problem we had was deciding what to order from the menu as it was all so tempting and didn't disappoint. The hotel offers excellent facilities including a reference...

Our stay at the Grant Arms was very good and the spacious rooms in a fantastic setting were memorable.
