Small family run friendly hotel. Stayed one night on business trip, was ideal. Evening menu was great quality and reasonably priced and owner was very welcoming. Room was nice and very well appointed with a very high quality bathroom ensuite with quality toiletries provided. Breakfast was in a relaxed setting overlooking the pool and food was of the highest order and very tasty. Well done Rob and team!

Rob & Jo and all the fantastic team, provided a 'perfect reception' for our daughter's wedding on September 24th 2011. From our first meeting to discuss plans, right through to the Sunday when we left, we found staff to be friendly, attentive and professional. Jo was so helpful with the planning, very easy and comfortable to work with, we felt confident she had understood all the details, and were delighted with the results! They have created a wonderful wedding venue.
We were fortunate enough to stay the two nights of the wedding weekend. We can only agree with a recent travel review in a Sunday paper that, "the bed was quite honestly the most comfortable we have ever slept in". Great dinner on the Friday night, with local seasonal produce. We really appreciated the unpretentious relaxed atmosphere. So glad we found them!

We stayed here for a night in August 2011. Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor before booking, we were rather disappointed. The room was small and the bathroom was tiny. There was hardly any storage in the bedroom (no drawers). The bed was too soft and was old, worn out and creaky. The swimming pool was not relaxing and was full of kids from the neighbouring holiday cottages. The service at breakfast was slow and confused. Given the claims about high quality local produce, the sausages were not up to standard. This is not a cheap hotel and really should deliver a better experience. I don't think we would stay here again.

We arrived at the hotel and received a warm welcome and a complimentary pot of tea and cake. The room was spotlessly clean, well furnished with very comfy beds. The decor was light and fresh and clean. Lovely thick towels and flannels!
The dining room was beautifully decorated lending a calm and relaxed ambience. Plenty of room between tables. Excellent breakfast..freshly cooked and you can order as much as you like, together with juices, cereals, fruit etc. We never felt rushed. We ate dinner in the hotel the first night and were so impressed we ate there the following 3 nights. We decided we'd be hard pushed to find such good quality elsewhere without having to book a taxi adding to the cost of a night out, or without one of us having to drive!
The service was second to none. The staff and owners couldn't have been more helpful. We had an issue with our shower which we mentioned one morning, it was dealt with by the time we returned in the late afternoon.
We would highly recommend this hotel and plan to return soon. Didn't try the therapies but plan to next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel for the best view. Ours was at the side but not unpleasant.

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and would stay again if in the area. We didn't eat in the restaurant other than for breakfast, which was fine.

The room was clean and well equiped and the staff were all very friendly.
