Deliberately planned my route so I ended up staying here as been previously. i was not disappointed. My room was clean and comfortable and on the ground floor which was rather nice not having to carry luggage upstairs. Despite being on ground floor it was also very quiet. Plenty of room to catch up on work and free wifi. Both... More

Clean, tidy, pleasant staff, good parking, good food, nice bar area, tea/coffee in the rooms, good bathroom and shower, perfect for a quick overnight before a family wedding in the area. Easy to find on the main road but it wasn't so busy that it hindered our sleep.

Visited with 4 others for a family birthday meal. Very attentive and friendly staff who create a really warm and friendly atmosphere. Sumptuous choices on the menu all cooked and presented wonderfully. I'd say that this place gives a refined yet relaxed dining experience which we all really enjoyed

Congratulations for 25 years of excellent food and service. We have visited for all of those years and I can honestly say that I have never had a poor meal or service. What an achievement to maintain those high standards consistently for 25 years. Good luck for the future.

My first visit here and we were extremely impressed. Stayed overnight - a beautiful room with a very comfy bed and a delicious breakfast - and we had dinner on Saturday evening as well. The food was absolutely divine. Two courses each and one pud between us. Everything was gorgeous - and the steak was cooked to perfection. A very... More

This is specifically a review of the Brasserie as we live too close to stay in the hotel. Two excellent experiences recently, a meal for two for Sue's birthday and and a group meal for the Hoghton Players. Whether you turn up as a couple, or arrange a block booking with the party menu, you'll get good food with smart... More
