Food was good, room was lovely, shower was excellent ,staff were all lovely and everywhere was very clean and tidy
It was all good
My partner and I have stayed on a previous and had a delightful stay. The ambiance was lovely, quite warm, inviting and the food was delicious.
The bed was extremely uncomfortable which led us to have a sleepless night. A staff member was rather unpleasant and made myself feel quite uncomfortable with what I was ordering which spoiled a part of the evening. The staff member in question in the morning still made her feelings known with a few rude glances.
Super comfortable bed. Nice bar and log fires. Lovely big bathroom with nice contemporary fixtures.
Standing at the bar waiting for someone to check me in. It is a pub and there is no reception as such. Shower was a tad temperamental due to a problem with an airlock that they said they would look into.
All the staff (apart from one) were very nice and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The perfect amount of space for two people to feel cozy but not cramped. The shower was great and we had plenty of clean, fresh towels each day. The convenience of adding drinks from the bar or food from the restaurant to your room bill was appreciated. The restaurant had a varied menu and the food itself was consistently excellent. The breakfast selections were also wonderful. The coffee was good too. The pricing felt just about right. Not cheap enough so you wondered about what you were actually getting. Not too expensive such that you felt taken advantage of. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely like to stay at The Carpenters again.
Gosh, this is scraping the barrel a bit because we had a good time here. Overall, we felt 3 things could be improved. #1: The shelf space in the bathroom was extremely limited (room #3). We had to use the floor or the toilet seat to put out our things as we got ready in the mornings. There's ample space to put up a little shelf. Go on - you can do it! #2: A box of tissues in the room would have been helpful when coming into a warm room from the cold outside. #3: The young guy who checked us out could have been more accessible and friendly. We needed to get going on our last morning. After waiting at the bar for close on 10 minutes I had to go looking for him. When I found him, he went through the mechanics of payment, receipt, bye. A little "thanks for staying with us" or "safe drive to the airport" wouldn't have gone a miss. A little courtesy and appreciation goes a long way. Just a thought. Apart from that, our stay was very enjoyable.
Friendly staff, great food & beers, clean modern room with a good 2-person shower
Everything about my stay at the Carpenters was very nice; as I stay in hotels 45 weeks in the year it is one of thoese hotels I will remember when on a return trip.
Everything. I am a frequent traveller and this is the best yet.
rooms were really clean and comfortable, big rooms, big bathroom with deep bath
Modern cosy feeling, staff young and polite made me feel welcome, rooms are stunning, surroundings stunning
The food was fabulous and all of the staff were friendly and helpful. I would happily recommend my friends and family to this place and will no doubt return!
Friendly staff and family feel. Good food, nice room.
The lighting in the bathroom (Room 1) needs improving as there is no light over the mirror. I imagine this would drive the women mad! :-)
The place was busy but the staff always found the time to ensure you were looked after. The beds and rooms were clean and no complaints.
I had trouble getting the wi-fi--minor.
Would definitely stay again, like the decor, very quiet as well
Location was good with lots of parking. Staff friendly and helpful. There is no lift to the 2nd floor, bit staff offered to take our cases up to our room. Good food, well presented.
Well furnished and decorated rooms, with all modern facilities. The restaurant provided excellent meals, while the overall atmosphere of the place was both welcoming and convivial.
It is a working pub/restaurant, so one can expect a degree of noise until closing time, and early in the morning with the kitchen and other staff arriving, but it was never obtrusive.

Last minute booking to break my journey and do local sightseeing. Room v pleasant, nicely decorated, bed comfortable. Great shower, excellent food, with gluten-free options. Safe parking. Lovely staff!
Room was over kitchen door, so altho' the weather was warm, had to keep windows closed to reduce noise of kitchen and very loud extractor fan, and try to keep the cooking smells out! Bathroom needs shelves and more hooks or rails.
Nice friendly staff, good food, good - nights sleep.
The rooms the atmosphere friendly helpful staff the fact that as a single women travelling alone I was made to feel very welcome I look forward to staying again
no iron or ironing board in the room
Friendly helpful staff good breakfast comfortable bed
room rather cramped no soap holder in shower (drill one into corner) measly piece of soap provided
Good size room, comfy bed and big bathroom. Decor and furniture pleasing to look at and location was quiet. Fish pie was tasty but veg that accompanied (peas) could have been more inventive
Room was too hot even with windows open and radiator off. Bedside lamps looked attractive but didn't give adequate light for reading by. A light on or near the dressing table would have helped too. Staff weren't particularly welcoming. One meal (pork duo) was far too expensive for what it was and came with no potatoes or extra vegetables. Chips were brought when we complained.
Room 9 was fabulous for my needs and turned a whistle-stop stay into a little bit of unexpected luxury!
Stay wasn't long enough!
The room was large and well equipped with a very modern bathroom
Ambience staff food accommodation excellent value for money
