Score from 40 reviews Superb
Very stylish. Outstanding room
Poor signage to venue. No-one there to book me in. If I didn't have a charged phone I'd never have got in. Very bad first impression and annoying.
Comfortable, clean and spacious.
very uneven floors affected my wife's meniers which made her dizzy throughout the stay. Did not like having to leave hotel for breakfast.
The hotel itself (rooms and reception) is fantastic, very well finished and attractive. Food is served in the pub in the same location and is excellent and also very good value. All of the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.
The fridge in my room should have automatically turned off at 9pm (according to the sign in the room) but didn't meaning that I had to turn it off in order to get any sleep. The receptionist made a note of this, apologised and said she'd look into it. Not a huge problem.
Excellent attitude of the staff from Manager to cleaning and bar staff. Food good ambiance very good
As I was on business the problems they were experiencing on Wi-Fi fixed by the last day of a 5 night stay
friendly comfortable we did not have breakfast our choice so cannot rate food. Tea facilities in room important to us
a little far out
All the staff were so helpful to my mum who has Parkinson's, even the golf club made us sandwiches after they had closed,I would definitely stay again :)
That I couldn't stay any longer! ;)
loved the room. nice quality decor. especially liked the fresh milk for tea very nice and quiet. dinner and breakfast were cooked well and provided a good choice.
could have had a nice rug on the floor by the bed as there were no slippers provided.
Very helpful staff everything we asked for we got
Quiet and rural location
I'm not the tallest person, but the A-Frame beams in the Ash suite which I didn't know about initially, were very low...
Awesome place. Spacious, clean, fresh. Very spacious.
It's was a wonderful place, room was superb, staff so helpful , can't wait to visit again
Looked for something for a one night stay for an Anniversary celebration but not too far to travel. Channels was a perfect fit. Lovely, quiet surroundings, comfortable room, restaurant only a short walk away. Not quite fine dining as they are trying to cater for relaxed pub menu and restaurant in one but perfectly good. Staff very friendly.
Clean, comfortable and peaceful
Very friendly welcome after a long drive. Nice chatty staff at the restaurant. Felt like a home away from home - highly recommend Channels Lodge.
The quiet location and the décor and facilities in the room were great.
The room was smaller than expected from the photos on booking.com.
highly recommended, will be going back to try some of the other rooms.
Wifi didnt reach the room , but work everywhere else...
Massive bed Clean Comfortable sofa Tasty breakfast
Everything. Absolutely everything has been well thought out and executed, I would love to go back. Relaxing, Quiet, comfy bed, stunning HUGE bathroom, enormous room, lots and lots of storage space, fresh milk in the mini fridge along with alcohol and chocolates.. bonus... Thank you x.
I can't say there was anything to dislike about this place...
Lovely room location food and service
Free wifi was so slow I gave up!
Lovely room, great food
Everything was perfect only fault were the pilliows on the bed didn't suit me but everyone's different! Would definitely stay again and highly recommend!
