We arrived earlier than expected but recieved a very warm welcome from Jill, the lady on reception. After confirming that our room was ready she helped us to take our bags to our room and ensured everything was to our satisfaction. The room was a reasonable size, clean and beautifully appointed. We booked in for dinner which was excellent. We...

Dear 46clarkey, We're very lucky to share the old High Street with Broughton House which is a fantastic property so I'm pleased you found us and enjoyed the garden. You can eat with your dogs in our Sports Bar or garden - just not the Lounge or restaurant. We hope to welcome you both again - thank you for taking...

We just returned after having a very enjoyable meal. My wife had a cheese soufflé which she thought was very tasty and of a good portion size. I had a Nasi Goreng with prawns, again really tasty. The reason for the missing star is that the Service was very slow, otherwise we recommend this bistro

Dear Peter M, Thank you for your comments about your meal - I'm pleased you found them to be tasty and value for money. I can only apologise for any slow service - I can't think why that would be or which evening it was - on the busier evenings we can serve up to 90+ meals, perhaps that held...

Couldn't have picked a better place to celebrate our Ruby Wedding. The staff were so helpful and friendly. Our room was clean, fresh, spacious, and quiet with good views up and down the high street. The bowls of fruit stacked with apples and pears for our convenience, and the bouquet of flowers with the champagne, topped it all of. The...

We stayed for one night and had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant of this small hotel. All the staff we met were very pleasant and helpful. The public areas are decorated with works by local artists and those in the restaurant are for sale. Our room was a good size, very clean and with modern decor and furnishings &...

Dear greenerfingers, Thank you for your observations - they are very much appreciated as we have gone to lengths to refurbish, upgrade and improve the comfort of the bedrooms recently.

We booked this at the last minute (it is at the top end of local prices) and were not really sure what to expect but were absolutely thrilled when we arrived.

Dear Timgin, Thank you so, so much for your lovely review. Delighted we surpassed your expectations. The Hotel is definitely not one of these 'uniform' ones regards layout and rooms - it's a fantastic, very old building with some rooms quirkier than others and the exterior belies the size and layout inside. Unfortunately this also applies, at times. to the...
