Fab dog friendly hotel
We stayed for one night with the dogs. The staff were so friendly. The room was spacious (delux double) and plenty of room for three. The grounds were great for walking the dogs. We had a burger in the bar which was great and the dogs could go there too. There is a table in reception with treats for them! The waitress even brought them a bowl of water when she brought our drinks. Comfy beds too. All in all fab stay and will return.

Great venue and staff
Hotel lovely, staff really friendly. Comfy rooms and spotless. My room was in one of the annexed buildings - but of a maze getting to and from the room but overall thought it’s a great hotel full of character and charm. Good location and easy to find

Showing signs of ageing
A very dog friendly hotel, key point for us, but a hotel needing some investment in upkeep, general maintenance and a deep clean. Very friendly staff, great leisure facilities, just a shame our room had a very uneven mattress and bathroom walls not very clean (mould spores, guest beard trim hairs etc). Tatty stair carpets, with worn areas and gaffa tape etc. Sagging leather sofas in the bar area such that I had to double up the cushions to be able to sit. Amongst lots of crumbs I did find £1.20 in coins in the sofa, so goes to show how often it’s cleaned. A bit of spend on certain areas and could be lovely again.

Broken heating and mouldy ceiling
Entered my room to realise that it was extremely cold. Found out the radiator was not working. Contacted reception who checked and confirmed it wasn't working. Not offered another room but instead a small fan heater that then had to be turned off when not in the room or sleeping as it' a fire hazard. It did eventually heat up the room but then headed out for dinner and when I returned room cold again. Similar overnight and struggled for sleep. Possibly due to the cold room, the bathroom had mould across the ceiling. Not what you'd expect from a 4 star hotel and won't be staying again. On the plus side, the breakfast was good!

the staff are fabulous and so very helpful. A wonderful place to stay. the facilities are great and food divine. one point to be eco friendly and purely a personal choice would be that there is no need to replace towels daily unless they are placed in the bath

Great stay
We came here for 2 nights for my wife’s birthday with our son and our dog. The hotel was beautiful, great choice of food, comfortable bed and room but the staff were really what made it. Every staff member we met went above and beyond during our entire stay. The leisure facilities were fantastic, the pool was warm and the changing facilities were spotless. The hotel itself was scrubbed throughout our time there. We had a nosy at the wedding rooms too which were set up as we have immediate family looking for a venue and we would definitely recommend here based on our stay and experience. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely return.
