Score from 122 reviews Good
excellent stay beautiful decorations would highly recommend it
Very smart inside and staff excellent. Best breakfast I have had in a long time!
Very poor light in the bathroom. Could hardly see myself to have a shave. If you were a woman then no chance with make-up.
Friendly staff, bedroom warm but not overheated. Menu in restaurant good with local produce featured. Excellent pizza and local sparkling wine.
Small but comfortable room. Nice bar area
Problems with broadband on the day
Loved the lounge/ bar area....barman made a coffee just as wanted.....excellent!
The room was a bit noisy in the early hours of the morning....and couldn't turn the heating down ....room was really hot through the night
Everything, especially the restaurent where an excellent meal can be enjoyed in a warm, friendly and homely environment.
The staff were friendly from the moment we arrived and the suite we had was comfortable and well appointed. The bar was welcoming and we enjoyed a good snack lunch. In the evening we dined in the restaurant where the food was excellent.
Large and comfortable rooms in a good situation.
Some rooms are high in the building and there is no lift.
Stunning decor and furnishings. Very clean. Food outstanding and locally sourced - even had gluten-free sausages for breakfast. Nothing was too much hassle. Situated in the middle of a quaint town. Room verh20 clean and well furnished. Bed very comfy.staff very friendly.
Bed was really sqeaky and lighting in the room was a little poor.
Lovely lively bar & barstaff, cosy restaurant. Paid to upgrade to a junior suite which had lovely roll top bath.
Delux double room a bit plain for the money & lacking in accent furniture,The tv was tiny ( size of monitor) mounted high on wall. No robes.
Excellent dinner Stylishly quirky decor Lovely bed linen Nice welcome on arrival
Young staff not trained/motivated to engage well with guests. Breakfast choice meagre and staff lacking in self motivation and direction from above.
my room was comfortable, well appointed with tasteful modern decor; it was also very quiet, I loved the bathroom and especially the shower design. The menu was 5* and the food excellent. parking at the town carpark across the road was no problem and is provided free of charge. I highly recommend this hotel.
Very pretty dining room.
Fell short of what I was expecting from a hotel charging those prices. I don't think I am the type of guest they aim to cater for; won't be returning.
The room, the staff and the food
The loll and feel. FOOD
location room cleanliness
lack of attention to detail
Comfortable room and reception were very helpful
The wifi was down the 2 nights we stayed,but was due to be repaired as we left so we can't comment on usual availability.
Very attractive décor and layout throughout. Great ambiance in restaurant. Very good food. Excellent staff, all very pleasant and helpful. Adjacent to stunning town views.
Noisy room next to main road junction. Firm mattress.
I liked the location and we had a spacious room.
The wifi didn’t work for the 3 days we were there and it seemed nobody planned to fix it. One staff member confided that they were actually using the free wifi from the bank across the road. So my last morning there, I stood at the entrance of the hotel with my tablet in my hand, so I could make travel plans and make contact with my family. No notice was posted notifying us that the wifi wasn't working. The room was also very hot and the window only opened about 4", seemingly to keep the pigeons out. They were nesting just outside the windows, waking us early and decorating the conservatory with their droppings.
Lovely hotel in a lovely village. Very modern and restaurant was nice. They moved things around so we could check in early as we were going to a wedding
Greeting on reception wasn't overally friendly and we seemed an inconvenience because we checked in early. Staff in restaurant took ages to get some toast and the breakfast could have done with a top up
Great receptionist, very helpful with quick (late) check-in, taking us to our room, & booking of taxi. Super decor and comfort in newly refurbished room. Breakfast room lovely, and food freshly cooked and hot.
Breakfast service could have been much better, several staff around, but slow and not anticipating clients needs, eg. Serving spoons missing from cereal jars; meats, yoghurt, & fruit not topped up; no cereal/tea spoons on tables; had to ask for tea twice.
Bed, staff, breakfast, decor.
Beautiful hotel in a beUtiful place
No tea bags in room
overall very good with friendly staff. The food lacked a choice of ordinary menu, not all guests wish to eat the menu on choice. We have travelled the world and as such are Plain eaters, there was no facility for this.
The breakfast was under cooked. The fried egg had not been cooked properly, which left the egg white under cooked. The fried bread, for what there was of it, was over cooked, so that when you placed a fork into it, it shattered into many pieced.
The hotel had recently undergone a major refurbishment, very tasteful, creating a relaxed, clean and friendly environment. Staff all polite and helpful.
Bathroom beautifully refurbished, however, not so good from a functional point of view, the deluge shower had a glass with no door, hence, a wet floor to share! Also having only a deluge shower gave little option on washing your hair ! A wall mounted hand shower would have been a nice option.
