We took advantage of the three day special break over Christmas. The hotel, staff, food and service were all excellent. They were all very helpful and dog friendly. Highly recommended and would be more than happy to stay there again.

Hi coming to stay in march does the hotel have a car park plz
they have 4 parking spaces directly at the back of the hotel but you'll be very lucky to get one. You can park at the public car park also directly behind the hotel for £2 per night. You have to get a parking permit from the reception where you have to leave your credit card details in-case you run off with it !

"Avoid Room 28 at all cost. Next to the noisiest oldest lift ever. Tiny room with a corridor of a bathroom."
"We had room 17, possibly above the kitchens, too hot and had the windows open in December to sleep comfortably."
"Try to secure room that is close to or near to the rear of hotel"
"front rooms overlook main street, good sound proofing. If walking difficulties go for lift areas[assuming its working]"
"Rear rooms have fantastic views."
