The hotel staff did a great job looking after a group of 40 of us for a birthday weekend. The evening carvery catered for for over 140 people in total (many groups); the staff were all friendly and helpful. Breakfast and other events were also superbly managed.

Just returned from this wonderful hotel where we spent two very pleasant nights. The staff were all very efficient and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed here a few years ago so knew what to expect. I'm certain we will return again in the not too distant future. Thoroughly recommended.

The hotel has recently been/is being updated. The staff were lovely and very helpful. We had 2 rooms, one you could tell had been recently updated and was very sumptious with a sparkly bathroom, and lovely comfy bed. The second room was a bit more dated however, was still very comfortable with a large clean bathroom. The bistro next door...

Spent Christmas with Brend Tours at the R&F. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and Management. Luke was charming and warmly welcomed each guest and made sure that less mobile guests were well looked after. The food was very good and except for a couple of minor hiccups during a very busy service on...

What a lovely hotel, we are on a pre Christmas break. Unfortunately we have to leave on Christmas Eve, The staff are second to none, The food is excellent, I am sure if one had a problem it would be sorted without any fuss or bother. Most certainly worth more than its 3 stars. Happy Christmas to one and all...

We found this hotel to be perfect. The meals were superb, the bedrooms very comfortable and its position in the centre of the town excellent.The staff were very attentive and helpful and were always at hand to look after our needs. Plenty of free parking very close to the hotel (one minute away!) Strongly recommended

Stayed here for two nights with work. The hotel looks grand from the outside, but that is as far as it goes.
