The afternoon tea was served on traditional cake stands and there was plenty of it. Tea and coffee were refilled free as needed. The quality of the food superb and there was a pleasing variety, from sandwiches,...

Exactly what was needed on a cold, miserable night. Our room was huge!! Room 24 - "old worldy", massive sleigh bed, living area with fireplace (electric coal effect) and a modern bathroom....

Pleasant staff, comfortable surrounding and surprisingly good food.The hotel is 3 star and looks like that - it needs a facelift as it's tired and down at heel.
