          Thanks for your comments. We disagree that everything is old-fashioned, as our public areas and our rooms have recently been refurbished to modernise them slightly - but without sacrificing the Victorian character as so many accommodations do. We are delighted you enjoyed our food -...More

          I stayed two nights at the Royal Sportsman with a group of golfers, thus making a change from the hotel's usual stock-in-trade, of hikers and climbers. My room, which was comfortable enough, albeit with shower rather than bath, was in a rather dingy courtyard, with...More

          Thanks for your review. Actually the vast majority of our Special Interest groups/parties are golfers - rather than walkers/climbers - particularly in Apr-Jun and Sept-Oct. Very many guests who stay in our newly-refurbished, standard-sized Courtyard rooms love them, though some do prefer either a larger...More
