This hotel is of a very high standard, and seems to be family run. Our room was very comfortable, well decorated, and up to date. Dinner in the evening was from avery sensible choice of dishes: I would have been happy with any one of them. I started with a lovely baked goat's cheese wrapped in parma ham, followed by... More

Used the hotel as a base we were absolutely knocked out by the size of the rooms that big we kept looking for the kitchen. Room was well appointed and clean. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Kippers on the menu for breakfast always a bonus.

Overrated and overpriced. Cleanliness excellent but the whole place needs money spending on it. If you are staying, find somewhere else to eat your evening meal. Unlike a previous reviewer my steak was appalling as was my wife's. Service random and food was very poor with a limited menu. Near a main road but it wasn't noisy.

The hotel staff are welcoming, polite & helpful. The room I had was quiet, clean and comfortable. The food was well prepared, I would recommend that if vegetarian is required you make this very clear at booking as, it seems most visitors are carnivores and are well catered for. The fish meal I had was tasty.

We had a good time there were problems but nothing major. If you are going to the area I would recommend it. The rooms are good and comfortable there are a few minor maintenance issues. The staff are very friendly.

We arrived late at Kemps Country House after travelling for around 12 hours of driving, so were more than relieved to be met by a very helpful and friendly member of staff who showed me around and provided instruction about the following morning's breakfast plans. The room was absolutely huge. We stayed in a family room, 2 adults, 2 children.... More

I was very impressed by the photos of this hotel and as it was in the area we wished to visit, we booked it. When first arriving I was a little disappointed as it wasn't quite as grand as it looks on the photos. There isn't a proper 'desk' to go to on arrival, just a couple of ladies in... More

We booked this hotel a couple of weeks in advance, really liked the look of the place. As we were set to attend a wedding nearby, it was a perfect location for us. The pictures looked great on the website and their own reviews were enough for us to go on and settle on this one. It was a bit... More

We recently attended a wedding in the area and selected Kemps Country House Hotel, thinking we would have somewhere charming and cosy to stay. We arrived late in the evening, to find nobody around to greet us for some time. We were allocated Annex Room 2 which turned out to be a room for people with disabilities. It was quite... More
