We arrived after midnight and the staff were not fazed at all and made us feel at home. It was easy to find and there was good parking. Breakfast was good and staff were knowledgeable about the local area

We visited the hotel for lunch after a family event in Craven Arms, and as soon as we entered the restaurant the problems began. There were 12 of us eating and we were put on three round tables instead of a long table for all of us, this was surprising as they had plenty of square tables that could have... More

The staff in the hotel are pleasant but the double room was really average with zero sound insulation from the corridor and the creaks of people passing were loud enough to disturb sleep. The carpets on the stair are dirty as is the carpet at the foot of the stairway. The refurbishment is not evidence in the bathroom where the... More

Situated on a busy main road, we thought it would be noisy at night but it is not. The road has very little evening and night traffic and the position of the rooms meant that even with both windows open, we didn't hear traffic noise. At check in, the staff were very helpful and welcoming. The room was fine: large,... More
