Top Class.
I have never experienced such an excellent hotel. It was impossible to find a fault. The Staff were Friendly and Helpful. The Room was Amazing and whoever cleans and prepares them are Six Star. The Bar was Enjoyable and Food in the Restaurant again Excellent. Definitely Worth a Revisit. Last but not Least Great Value.

8/10 Very good

We had a very good experience overall. The staff were great. Beote looked after us very well. The room was spotless, decor lovely and really warm. Breakfast was great, cooked to order. The only issue was the noise at nighttime with people coming in from the pub.
