Last minute decision to go away with some friends and it didn't disappoint. Room was basic but very clean and comfy with everything you needed. Lovely bathroom too. Pool was very busy with kids on the Saturday afternoon and babies swimming lessons on Sunday morning so not very relaxing. Unfortunately the pool and jacuzzi were too cold. I didn't brave...

We stay here quite regularly, when we can get a good rate and use this lovely hotel as a base to visit Richmond and Barnard Castle. It's actually more than a base, as it offers excellent, upmarket, business style accommodation with spa facilities and a very good restaurant too. All staff we've encountered have been excellent - that's why we...

Lots of roadworks going on outside upgrading the motorway. Got a room on top floor facing the back so no problems with any noise. When I got to the room found it to be too warm and a bit airless but after fiddling with heating controls got the temperature back to sensible levels. Standard room with comfortable firm bed. Efficient...
