    Good stay

    Good stay but one issue, with reference to someone's comments about the nice Scottish gentleman who works the night shift. He thought it was absolutely completely acceptable to hoover up at 3:45am and continued to make noise doing his tasks even when I clearly let him know it's not the norm because the rota said to do it then. Good choice for breakfasts, decent ingredients. Evening meal quality was fair. Would stay again if it wasn't for the night porter.

    A little dated but overall ok. Be aware an average breakfast costs £24.00, I stayed as a single guest and that was the cost!

    Very nice hotel, would be happy to stay again

    Lovely hotel, excellent food. Room was comfortable. Not the most modern fixtures and fittings, but in good condition and well decorated. Service a bit slow sometimes, but was friendly.

    Loved the surroundings and the house. We arrived at a very busy time. The staff did their best to make us comfortable, even with a large wedding party to look after. The birthday lunch for my sister was excellent the next day, once again everyone, friendly and helpful.
