Efficient, friendly staff provided a welcoming venue for our meeting last night. Superb hospitality and excellent location for our group to meet up. We will definitely be back and hopefully next time we will find the time to stay for a meal - the steaks looked wonderful.

Had dinner here here. Food was poor, but the guy who said he is one of the owners was just rude and awful. Loved himself into the bargain too. Would never go there again or recommend it to anyone either. Steer well clear. If I could give it zero or minus zero then I would. It really is that bad.

We stayed two nights at the rowantree hotel and it was very smart and clean,the only thing I would say if you get a room at the rear of the hotel keep your window closed or expect to wake up to the noise and the smell of breakfast being prepared,but apart from that it's a nice hotel and it's in...
