Hi Craig e, Wow what a wonderful review. Our head chef prides him self that all the food is baked and cooked daily even down to the bread rolls, and that the produce is locally sourced. You will have to come and check out our new menus that go live on the 7th April, I know that you will enjoy. More

Just a typical hotel in need of some work. Rooms a bit hot and the bed quality is poor. Great breakfast and very friendly staff. The restaurant ain't bad to be fair. An amazing view over the valley from the car park. Just a little further if rom the motorway than what we were hoping for

Hi Mulcaster2, Thank you for the feedback regarding your stay here at Santo's. I am sorry to hear that you felt that our beds are of poor quality, this I do have to disagree with as they are all actually top quality beds, some actually hand made throughout the world, but do understand that everyone has a difference of opinion....

We called in for Sunday lunch and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and price of the meal. Never have we seen such huge Yorkshire puddings! With two young children in tow, I think that we may have preferred to dispense with the white linen tablecloths and delicate, long-stemmed wine glasses and perhaps next time we will ask if we...

Hi Judith W, Thank you for your wonderful review regarding our Sunday lunch. I have to admit I have tried to make Yorkshire puddings like our chef and I have still not mastered it.

I live 40 miles away from this place however every time I come back to visit family I always beg them to come here. Can't comment on busy times as we usually come at lunchtime and it's lovely and quiet. I prefer it that way! The staff are very attentive and friendly. I don't come too often so when we... More

Family meal out. We all had steak and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Cooked to perfection and staff were attentive despite being very busy with a wedding and private party on site too. Highly recommended!

We've been here for our two previous Christmas party's and was looking forward to a third. When it was booked we was told we'd be seated on the dance floor and served first so they can vacate the dance floor and we'd have reserved seating in the covered courtyard area-lovely. Upon arriving we were told "there's the cloakroom" and just... More
