    The village was beautiful, the hotel was ok.

    The food was not very good, yet expensive. It was also noisy for such a quiet idilic location.

    Good

    Only stayed one night and was out for most of it, the look of the general hotel was nice and comfortable the bar was cosy and welcome looking (but I didn't get a chance to visit it).

    My room was very small and very tired , it could have done with an up date, the shower ran off the taps but was was warm and for my needs and for one night it was fine.

    The main areas downstairs were large, clean and comfortable. Location is fantastic in this lovely town. The building itself is attractive and seems a lot more 'genuine' than other chain hotels

    Frankly the bed was quite uncomfortable. I also found the bathroom facilities a little shabby; shower lacked decent power etc.

    Superb

    The hotel is extremely comfortable with a welcoming bar and a quiet lounge area. The log-burning stoves are both effective and spectacular. Breakfasts are freshly-cooked and of excellent quality. I enjoyed the food served in the restaurant, which also has a great ambiance. The friendliness and efficiency of the staff are outstanding. When I had an upsetting health problem (which turned out not to be serious) the response, particularly from Ken (the manager), was overwhelmingly kind and helped me to cope with a very stressful situation. A car was sent to collect me from the hospital where I had been treated, and no charge was made for the service.

    Though the hotel itself is set well-back from the road and has plenty of parking, access on foot does require care and patience because you need to cross a very busy road at a very awkward junction. (There are pedestrian-controlled lights, though motor-traffic is their highest priority.)

    Good

    The bed and bed coverings I found to be uncomfortable and a lot of traffic noise coming through the old wooden 'sash' style windows.

    open fires were good and the staff were friendly and fairly efficient

    the whole hotel decor is very tired and dated in desperate need of a refit. The was OK but not very imaginative and the menu was printed on a dirty sheet of A4 paper. The bed was hard, and overall not good value for money, expensive for what you get
