The bathroom was a disappointment as there was no shower other than a handheld attachment to the bath. The worst... More

My Wife and I stayed here on the night of our wedding. The best part of this place is the staff. They were lovely and very helpful. They even went to the liberty of dropping off the room key to us at our wedding reception. On arrival we were greeted by the staff who offered us drinks in the bar.... More

What a fabulous place with delightful outdoor space, great breakfast, a good location to discover Leek itself on foot. Great room, but sadly just a bath, no shower. Downside sadly of this unique building was lack of hot water & lack of sleep due to the road noise, such a shame. Very helpful friendly staff providing a warm inviting atmosphere.

Friendly greeting when we arrived, ordered drinks and sat in bar. We were then taken down to a table in the cellar which was quite cold and smelled a little damp. However we were the only ones in there as it was quite early so would be possibly warmer when full. We ordered a selection of tapas between the 3... More
