Totally remodeled and upgraded. Just beautifully done and so very nice looking. Style on the inside is very modern. Lowick is a beautiful small little village. The host (Karl) was so friendly and helpful. Please don't miss the really nice place to stay.

My wife ordered risotto, I ordered sirloin steak, the meals arrived after a short wait, my wife's risotto looked very appetising, my steak looked the same apart from the chips which were very overcooked to the point...

We booked a nights stay at the last minute, and we were really pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been very recently renovated, and is clean, bright and comfortable. The room wasn't huge but the bed was super comfortable and nicely decorated with a great monsoon shower. The bar was cosy and they had a surprisingly good range of gins. We...

We called for coffee and,as I usually can't find anything to eat, I was delighted to find that there was a gluten free carrot cake which was delicious. I was a little reluctant to book a table for evening meal as I am gluten, dairy and alcohol intolerant - never a good combination for dining out! However this was fantastic!...

We were staying locally and tried The Black Bill on the first night. It has clearly just been refurbished to a very high standard with lovely oak floors, colours in keeping with the age of the property and modern lighting. We had drinks in the bar (nice range of craft beers and gins) first. Food was excellent - we had...
