Staff were friendly and helpful. Stayed only one night in the stable block. Comfy bed, clean room, shower OK .. BUT THE FLOOR BOARDS!!!! If I had to moan then it would have to be about the floor boards, all around the room, the bathroom, the corridor and the stairs .. Other guests leaving at 5am have no choice but...

I have absolutely no complaints about the staff here, they were most welcoming and attentive - we could not fault them at all. The main area can best be described as a pub/restaurant - the food is good and service excellent. Our room was in the stable block, which has definitely seen better days. There is rising damp downstairs and...

You get what you pay for in life. Yhis is a budget hotel so why expect the Ritz, however it is clean, warm, welcoming and comfortable. The staff are lovely and always willing to help. Great for somewhere to lay your head if your in the area on business.

Recently stayed for a few days. Accommodation in the stables clean and tidy. Hotel does not offer the best services, food bland, breakfast late, not opening on time. Fried egg yolk broken, coffee in sachets, shortage of fresh items. Interior needs decorating, heard member of staff cursing about not getting day off.

We particulared liked the fact our...

This is my usual place to go to have food but today 29/01/2016 my friend ordered the gammon steak that tasted awful and left most of it, I had the chicken tikka and the chicken was slimy and tasted microwaved. Whilst eating this there was a lady and a man gossiping either about costumers that stayed in the hotel or...
