My wife and I visited this hotel today for Sunday lunch which had been recommended locally. We decided on their 2 course option, having a main course and dessert, both of which were plentiful, very tasty and good value. An enjoyable dining experience. We shall be returning.

A delightful gem. This ultra dog friendly hotel surpassed my expectations. Plenty of parking. Check in was warm, friendly and efficient. It is the only hotel I have seen that presents 4 legged guests with a bowl, toys, treats and Welcome Letter from the resident pooch. Our room was on the first floor, and only my stupidity made it harder...

A little gem set in lovely gardens. Every member of staff we came across was cheerful, efficient and friendly right from the moment we walked through the door we were welcomed with a smile and we felt we were treated like a special guest, rather than someone who would just be around for a couple of days. We were delighted...

We stayed here on half board as part of a walking group. The staff were very friendly and obliging - especially Guy (the Restaurant Manager) who couldn't have been more helpful. Both breakfasts & evening meals were excellent with efficient service. The rooms have been refurbished to a high standard and some have lovely views over the gardens. We stayed...

This visit we stayed five nights, there is always a warm welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was well appointed overlooking the countryside with the added bonus of the sheep, a very tranquil setting.
