Celebrated 50th with 40 close friends, pre-lunch drinks in the front bar followed by a sit down lunch in the restaurant. Sensational food, and excellent service (especially Lee-Anne & Graeme) made the day very memorab. Great time had by all!

Lovely, friendly and pretty quiet. Doors don't slam, have a slow self closing mechanism, which is a big bonus. Staff are very accommodating and friendly. Even with jazz band on Thursday, which played well. Rooms upstairs have shared bathrooms and communal kitchenette Downstairs Queen size room has its own bathroom. No bar fridge nor jug in room, so had to... More

I have no problem paying for a good meal but the prices suggested a much better fair than what was provided. The restaurant meals were tiny for the price which is ok for fine food but this was not. The service on a quiet night was sluggish and slack. All guests were very unimpressed.

Had dinner here with a group of friends. Restaurant is lovely, food was fabulous and service was excellent. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. They have a fixed price menu on Tuesdays and Wednesday which makes it good value.

All staff were very friendly, and our room was comfortable and clean. We arrived early at midday and were able to get straight into our room which was helpful.

We stayed at Carrington Place on New Year's Eve so that we could enjoy the festivities at Honeysuckle.
