My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. Our room, although fairly small, was perfectly acceptable - clean, comfortable and with a nice shower/bathroom. The breakfast is a small buffet but a cooked breakfast can be bought (we didn't as the buffet was adequate for us). Everyone we met at the hotel was polite and friendly so no complaints...

The staff are friendly, the room was comfortable, and there were welcoming log fires in the breakfast room. The view across the cricket ground was pretty, and it was fairly easy to get into town by bus.

This is a well presented hotel/bar/gastropub and would have warranted a higher rating had it not been for a number of minor irritations. Staff are welcoming and friendly; rooms are clean and well decorated and I cannot say that my four night stay was unenjoyable. However, they advertise that a buffet breakfast is available until 11:00am. Yet one morning at...

First time staying here for a course and I would happily return. The room was very clean and comfortable. When I first felt the mattress I thought I was going to have a disturbed night - I didn't. It gave more support than I initially thought. If you were staying a while you may find the storage limited. Desk and...

I had requested a family room as I was travelling with my daughter and granddaughter. I was most impressed when they emailed the day before to ask the age of the child and would she need a cot or a sofa bed so that they could ensure that the room was appropriately made up. Sadly, when we checked in at...

Was our first night on our holiday and a perfect way to start in the UK. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere and a nice place to stay. Breakfast was cereal and toasts which was great because we had older and younger children. Very warm and cosy.

We returned to stay after a few years as the location is close to friends. The rooms were ok - beds not that comfortable, noisy (to be expected near a busy road) and the wifi was very frustrating but we are told it is due to be upgraded soon. We've always loved the restaurant and had great service by Ellie...
