We arrived at the hotel and were warmly welcomed by all the staff, they all worked so hard to make our break memorable in which they succeeded. As well as being a very attractive building, the hotel was kept spotless at all times. The food was good and well presented with an acceptable number of choices and something to suit...

We took our daughter and granddaughter (aged 11) to this hotel for Christmas and, despite there being no other children, all the staff "went the extra mile" to make her feel welcome. Everyone connected with the hotel was very welcoming and all worked so hard to make the break memorable in which they succeeded. As well as being a very...

This was our fourth visit to this wonderful hotel - our first with close friends, and also our first time in the winter months.

This was our 2nd stay at the hotel on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis. Thoroughly enjoyed both visits. Hotel staff and BWWC team are very knowledgeable about the local area and wildlife. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was fantastic.

I spent a week at The Grant Arms Hotel, DB&B basis, during December '13. The hotel, all trimmed ready for Christmas and looking very festive, was very comfortable and the food was great. The main reason for my visit was to see the local wildlife so the addition of the BWWC based within the hotel was fantastic. The BWWC team...

We recently stayed for 5 nights on dinner, bed and breakfast terms and this was our third stay. We had a great time with excellent food and helpful staff and with the addition of the BWWC it was a bird watcher's dream. We are already considering when we might be able to stay here again.

We stayed two nights for a conference. The rooms are clean, warm and varied. The staff are attentive, adaptive and diligent. The food was of a uniformly high standard and excellent for variety, quantity & quality. The Victorian massivity of the building seems to guarantee quiet sleep. The surrounding town is similarly tranquil and is an orderly place where the...

Our second visit did not disappoint and purely by chance was exactly the same week as last year. Must go in spring next time! Whilst being promoted as a wildlife centre it is extremely relaxing with not a Twitcher in sight. If you are new to Birdwatching as we are relatively speaking, an experienced birder, or even a tourist who...

Stayed 2 nights. Stumbled across this place by chance and could not have found a better place for anyone with even half an interest in walking/touring/wildlife - the staff and support facilities serving the Wildlife Club are fantastic. Beyond that, the hotel facilities are very good with my room being very clean and tidy with good modern facilities and all...
