These we then...

5 stars for staff and service, really excellent. 4 stars for Black Sheep room as bathroom is beginning to look a little worn. 4 stars for Dinner due to too much oil and deep fried food, but 5 stars for breakfast which was as good as it gets. Thanks

We stayed here on 27th February 2016 for one night for our anniversary. It'd been recommended by a friend as a slightly unique place to stay. We stayed in the Chocolate room in the main building and it was a great room; a good size with a nice bathroom and great chocolate coloured decor and artwork on the walls. There...
