We had a fabulous dinner, and after a comfortable nights sleep, a freshly cooked breakfast the next morning. The staff are friendly and professional, and... More

Visited on a cold Sunday in November. Staff were very attentive and the food delicious. Sitting in one of the grand but comfortable lounges in front of a log fire just added to the experience. The place was buzzing but on the other hand relaxing. Would definitely return. Have also visited in the morning for coffee and home made biscuits.... More

It's over 20years since we visited and were amazed at the fabulous refurbishment. The decor was so beautiful and very tastefully done throughout the whole hotel. The bedroom we had was gorgeous and with the most comfortable beds... More
