Stayed as a family with our 4yr old daughter. Staff were incredibly warm and helpful. Although we only stayed one evening, it was obvious that this was a well run operation in such an historic and well preserved building. Its current custodians deserve great praise for looking after it so well. They are obviously and quite rightly in love with... More

Quoting my wife "this has to be the warmest hotel we have ever stayed at" and I agree! The old part of the hotel is very interesting and the room we stayed in, which was in the 'newer' part was comfortable. The meals we had were good value and enjoyable. We ate from the bar menu one night and in... More

The staff were so helpful and professional, to aid us in the planning, organisation and on the night of a Choir Concert, held in The Old Court, to raise funds for St. Dubricius Church in Whitchurch. Choir members who had planned to eat there before the event, commented on the delicious food, and the welcome given.

This was to celebrate a special occasion, Entertainment that was laid on was very good, albeit the music etc. was a bit too loud, difficult to hear what anyone was saying. (I don't know who organised the entertainment.) We were given accommodation in a converted barn (called-Symonds Yat), it lacked some sort of attention i.e. poor quality duvet, hard pillows,... More

Our four poster bedroom which was quirky and comfy was fab but felt the bathroom could be updated. Had a great weekend food staff and... More

Have been here several times in the past and love the place. The building is stunning and matched with fabulous grub and great service. Highly recommended. One of the best in the area and certainly worth a visit

Rooms shown on website misleading as most rooms are like staying in a downtown 60's motel. Food passable but very expensive and staff are doing their best. Needs an urgent inspection and closing while It Is refurbished and part of the building re built. Log fires à Nice touch to take your mind off the rest !

Being so close to the motorway and faced with an arriving wedding party were not a good start. But our hearts were somewhat uplifted by both a very friendly reception and being upgraded to a barn apartment. The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They were charming, friendly and always helpful. The room(s) are a missed opportunity. They... More
