Stayed in a beautifully refurbished bedroom. Huge comfy bed, squishy carpets and lovely en-suite. The owners were extremely friendly. Not serving food just yet but used the Red Coaching Inn just down the road for breakfast. Great place to stay and will be even better when the refurbishments are complete.

This hotel is in the process of being refurbished. In the meantime business is as usual with the exception of a working kitchen - which was no issue as we dined and breakfasted at The Red Lion Coaching Inn. Meanwhile - this hotel is run by a lovely friendly and helpful couple, the locals in the bar are friendly and... More

Stayed here a few times before, and will always come back. The rooms are fantastic now, and Mark and Sandra always give a warm welcome to everyone. There is always somebody at the bar to have a chat with.

Stayed here just for one night. When I checked in, I was greeted with a smile that was very welcoming. Firstly, I decided to taste the ales and after a few lovely pints a member of staff showed me to my room. Clearly the accommodation has been recently refurbished. Everything was at hand, a TV remote, kettle and most importantly... More

Oh I have given a lot of Tripadvisor reviews and never as low as a 3 and I feel bad doing this but we didn't have the best stay here. We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights as we were taking a canal boat for a week starting from Ellesmere. We didn't see the renovated rooms and were obviously in... More

First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review of our Hotel. You are correct, the Hotel was, and still is, being renovated. Unfortunately at the time of your booking we only had the older style rooms with a bath. With hindsight we should have offered you the choice of an upgrade... More

This is a really difficult place to review. We needed somewhere close to Hanmer where we were visiting our baby grandson twins for the first time. We'd stayed at the Hanmer Arms, but it was full. I used reviews on Tripadvisor to help select this hotel. When I rang to book I asked for a quiet room. I was told... More

Stayed here for 2 nights and although our room (7) had been recently refurbished and was comfortable it is obvious the owners are working hard to raise the hotels standards, I wish them well.

Called in for a drink. Very friendly staff, excellent well kept beer Joules Original, so my husband said. I had a Spanish wine. No food available yet, under new management but food menu planned for the future. Free, fast WIFI.
