This is a small and cosy boutique hotel with a very personable and warm welcome. It will suit those who prefer an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The food is great and the rooms, while not at the apex of interior decoration, are very comfortable and will give a good nights sleep. There is also a very nice bar with very...

Spent an enjoyable 2 nights there recently, staff are lovely and welcoming, food was very good and rooms were fine and there was plenty of parking spaces. My only small gripe was that the WiFi was almost non existent, the signal wasn't strong enough either in the room or in the bar. Would definitely go there again.

I was visiting here with a work colleague as we were in Mansfield for a business course. We arrived on the Monday, had a couple of drinks in this establishment then headed out to elsewhere for more drinks.

Tastefully decorated reception restaurants,rooms very clean with everything you could need, though a little dated compared to downstairs. Helpful friendly staff,especially in the dining room at breakfast,which was really good. Would definitely stay again.

Staff were very helpful and friendly and able to give advice and directions as necessary. Standards were excellent throughout. A good base for golf in the area. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very good.

This hotel/restaurant was recommended by friends as a good base for their daughter's 18th birthday party just up the road. There's a nice (quite small) restaurant that's also used for breakfast in the morning, and a bar that's more relaxed and soothingly decorated where there's a lighter menu but you can also have dishes from the restaurant. Be warned you...
