Where to start, the hotel looks shabby from the outside and to get into the car park is tight, staff are nice. Our bathroom smelt very damp, the bed was comfortable, but the blinds were broken so couldn't change direction of them and they were...More

We visited when the weather was good, only people in the restaurant when we sat down. Excellent service, had starters and mains. Food fresh and meat so tender! Enough vegetables and breads to start. Well worth the visit for the roast dinner. We want to...More

Popped in for lunch and was very pleasantly surprised. Despite it's slightly faded glory look from the outside it is lovely inside with late Victorian tiling and period knickknacks around the place. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. My mother and aunt had the...More
