Very good service
Hotel staff and concierge were very good, it’s a lovely hotel, we didn’t get our room until just after 3 which wasn’t ideal and we had to ask for water for our room. The room was large and well appointed although could do with an update. Breakfast was nice so overall a very nice stay.

Ok hotel, but no good when the heating breaks
The hotel was in a great location and the rooms were nicely furnished. Unfortunately it wasn't very clean or in good condition. Additionally the heating in the hotel seemed to be broken (electric heaters were all over the lobby), so the room was really cold.

Donnie and Dave are so lovely
A beautiful hotel. A little attention required in the cleaning of the rooms especially the detail in the panelling and wooden furniture. Donnie and Dave were very welcoming and full of knowledge and tips for our days out. Staff were all helpful. The spare heater in the wardrobe was definitely needed in such cold weather and big old stone building but that kept us plenty warm enough.
