Stayed here with colleagues the night before a work event. A lovely quaint hotel in the middle of nowhere which was great. Fantastic beautiful old building. We all had dinner which was bang on pub grub. The staff were great, very helpful and accommodated our needs. The rooms were lovely, comfy bed, TV, good shower. All in all great hotel...

I stayed with my husband and small dog for one night as we were travelling to France the next morning on an early ferry. The location is absolutely gorgeous. It is a lovely picture perfect village.

Stayed just for one night on a work trip. The young front of house staff were affable and welcoming. Room was simply furnished with nice bits of original furniture and pictures, nothing corporate which makes a refreshing change. Extremely comfortable bed and all the amenities needed. Apart from soap in the bathroom which I'm sure they would have provided if...

We stayed for a 3 night long weekend and it was just right. Rooms are distributed in the main building and nearby annexes and everything is peace and quiet except for other visitors' kids! Food ok. An open and laid back bar area just right for chillin'.

This Hotel has the feel of an old fashioned inn, the restaurant and bar areas are furnished in a cosy home from home style and very nice to chill out with a nice drink from their well stocked bar. I thought the menu was a little pricey at first but the quality of the food was excellent. The young team...

Super-handy review, thanks ever so much. The most important piece of the hotel jigsaw is the people that work in the place.

Our stay at this hotel was pleasantly managed by a disorganised establishment. The wifi promised didn't work, the tea service in the room came without milk and our booking was mislaid . When we arrived we were too that we hadn't made a reservation, which we were certain that we had. After a fifteen minute nail biting wait it was...

The water pressure was not strong enough for a shower. Damp on the wall in the bedroom and the bathroom (see photos). However, the place is charming and excells in other areas. I would most probably go back to this place if I was in the area. Got the cheapest room and went with low expectations. Was initally dissapointed with...

Thanks for your useful feedback. You may have read in a previous review that we have plumbing issues recently and it took a little while to find the leak. We also recently had a summer deluge of very heavy rain which caused some gutters and roof valleys to overflow into The Loft Apartment. This did leave some stained areas on...
