Stayed here for a weekend. The room (a four-poster bedded room ) was great and had a fab view of the gardens. The owners were really friendly and chatty. A choice of cooked breakfast and as much toast and coffee as you like. Also choice of cereals and fruit on offer. Would definitely go back and highly recommend

After deciding last minute to have a weekend away, we phoned around and booked here for the night with breakfast. On arrival there was plenty of parking and a friendly welcome from staff. The hotel was easy to find with a satnav. The hotel is dog friendly, which although we didn't take advantage of we certainly would consider it in...

We have just spent 2 nights at this hotel, during the Christmas market festival. The hotel was easy to find with a sat nav, a small car park for 6/7 cars, a plus side for us.

My friend and I had stayed at this hotel on a weekend. The room was spacious and bed was comfortable. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately we didn't manage to make the breakfast. Only criticism was the bathroom. The toilet had not been cleaned probably the shower was broken.
