Stayed here for one night on business trip. Staff were really friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed my meal in the farmers bar, and the breakfasts are wonderful. Room was a good size and comfortable. Intend to go back.

My wife and I called here for afternoon tea having been given a Red Letter Day gift earlier in the year. Whilst the sandwiches provided were very nice and fresh, the so cold "dainties " were very poor indeed. The scones were tasteless and dry, as were the lemon cake and profiteroles. We will call again in a few months...

Stayed here for work for a couple of nights. The staff are good and the rooms in the annex seem reasonable. I understand that the rooms in the main hotel building are better. The set meal for dinner was really nice and good value. You order your breakfast from the table so you might not get as much as you...
