We visited Stanley House for a break on our way back to Glasgow from Birmingham. This in itself excited comment from the friendly staff: "what are you doing down here?" This seemed to indicate most of their custom was local - or at least from the North West, which is a shame in some ways - this place is just...

Stayed here one night on business. Well looked after by the staff and enjoyed two great meals, lamb for dinner and a cracking full English. Shame there's no pool but was told there is one planned for the future.

We recently visited the Grill on the Hill for a meal with friends. We usually book Mr Fred's as it is a little bit more reasonably priced but thought we would splash out - we weren't disappointed as the service and food were top notch. We just had mains and two of us tried dessert, everything was absolutely delicious and...

Massive compliments to the spa and the staff over there. My husband and I spent a night here a few weeks back. It really is a beautiful setting and we could really switch off. More beds needed around the pool area but appreciate its a small section. Make sure you ask for Charlotte to do your massage, she was amazing...

Called for lunch today, we didn't book, but called on chance. We where welcomed at reception and shown to our table in Mr Fred's restaurant, a spacious airy room with a large glass frontage. Our meals where served quickly and where well prepared and enjoyable.The menu for lunch should suit everyone.

This is one of the most special places I've visited. A small but uniquely formed hotel and a place to escape the world for a little while. Everything about it oozes style and I couldn't fault it. A true haven to escape to for a relaxing indulgent treat.
