Absolute treat to stay
Absolute treat to stay here, I try and visit a few times a year. Recently upgraded, the quality of fittings, sheets, duvets etc is superb, whilst the furniture is maintaining the era of the building. Food really good, beautifully presented and a definite cut above the rest locally, take the time sit back and enjoy a decent G&T here.

Our second visit…definitely won’t be our last
This was our second trip here. We stayed last year under unhappier circumstances (I found out I had lost my job due to covid the day we checked in) so we always told ourselves we would come back under happier circumstances to erase the memory. This stay did not disappoint. Our room was amazing, spacious and immaculately clean. The hotel has had a refurb during one of the lockdowns and the addition of a claw-foot bath in our already amazing bathroom didn’t disappoint! We had all our meals here and they were an amazingly high standard as usual - much credit to Andrew the chef who is a hidden talent and a real asset to the hotel. The bar is wonderfully atmospheric and we whiled away many an hour with a drink, looking over the lovely gardens. Our only small disappointment was that we kept missing Ben the resident spaniel (who belongs to one of the managers) but what was our bad timing rather than his! Things are looking up for us after a tumultuous 18 months and we are glad to say the hotel appears to be the experiencing the same. We will definitely be back - thank you to Nick and Steve for an outstanding stay as always.
