I came here with a couple of friends on a weekend evening - as we decided to try out the Tapas menu having heard some good reviews. We were not disappointed by it either. We were promptly seated in a small but intimate downstairs cellar area which was nice and cosy and served with our choice of drinks promptly. We...

Visited here with my wife a couple of weeks ago on a sunny day. The beer garden is in my opinion one of the best in leek. I visited here last summer with a pal and the garden was splendid. Worth a visit for a pint or glass of wine on a day when the weather is good.

The hotel looks stunning from the outside. There is no indication on arrival where the hotel reception is we figured it out and we're met be a helpful member of staff. We were given room 5 which had a 4 poster bed and a large bathroom. In general everything is fine but just a little upgrading would make it as...

I stayed here with colleagues following a business meeting. The room was adequate, the bed had a soft poor quality mattress, however at 5.30am, I was woken by a constant stream of HGV's braking for the traffic lights at the bottom of the road. To add to a poor start to the day the electric shower did not work. Fortunately...

I spent one night in the hotel following their Halloween party and the place is amazing. The room was spacious and very comfortable and is the only hotel room I've ever stayed in which has a bathroom with a floor to ceiling stained glass window (see pic). The hotel offers excellent food and has two bars which serve some fantastic...

Fab place - lovely old parquet flooring in the entrance hall - we were given a choice of rooms - one with a four poster bed that looked lovely but we chose the one with the free standing bath! The room (1) was very beautifully decorated - my only comment is that they could do with putting 2 more lamps...

We spent a couple of days at this hotel as we needed to make an emergency visit to see family. The hotel owner was so friendly and really helped us out last minute. The rooms were very nice and comfortable and breakfast was fab! Thoroughly recommend this place 😄
