Visited this hotel for our anniversary. Check in was very easy and friendly and the room was very clean and welcoming. Our dinner was exquisite, our only problem being it was so hard to choose from such a superb menu. All the five courses were so beautifully presented and the combination of flavours complemented each other so well. Our breakfast...

The welcome from the proprietors was sincere and very warm, the rooms spotless, quirky and comfortable. This is a hotel that is very much it's own self: unique...

We have fortunately been able to stay at Crossways on a number of occasions so that we can enjoy a relaxed meal without having to drive home afterwards. We went again last week and, as ever, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. David and Clive are perfect hosts and the food more that lived up to expectations - and we think that we...

After a superb dinner, with excellent hosts David & Clive, followed by a good nights sleep in a well furnished, and comfortable, room, we enjoyed a first class full English breakfast. Everything we know we will find after many years of visiting at Crossways, who could wish for anything more.

“Don't worry if your room is at the front of the hotel overlooking the road, the efficient soundproofing will guarantee a good night's sleep!”

“There are only about 8 rooms and I've been in just about all of them over the years. They are all spacious bar one which is still adequate for a one or two night stay. The 'honeymoon suite' is very large and has an outside balcony which is lovely to use if you go in the warmer months. ”
