My hubby booked this as a birthday treat. We were offered a drink in the bar whilst we looked at the menu. I had a gin and tonic recommended by the person serving us. My only issue was that they didn't have great beer. Something I think needs to be addressed. The menu was plentiful. We were brought canapés which...

We ate here on a Friday lunchtime. The food was extremely good, however the whole experience was ruined by the serving team who were inexperienced and clearly had no idea what they were doing. It felt like the management had left them to it with no training at all, dissapointments included; - Being served our starters with no cutlery available...

Arrived late in the evening. Greeted with warm smiles. Reception had read and dealt with the additional requests on the online booking form. Really friendly staff. Decor is dated but the buildings themselves are full of character.

As the weather was so nice we sat in the garden and drank a few little vodkas. The evening meal which was the Taster Menu of 6 courses, we had an...

I and my sister stayed at The Great House Hotel for a 3 night break. In that time we experienced not only the standard B & B but also lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, the sauna & jacuzzi facilities and room service - and we couldn't fault a thing. The staff could not have been more friendly or accommodating to all...

Our aim is to make your stay with us relaxing and enjoyable.
