Visited the hotel for a lovely night with family. WATCHED a Tina turner tribute...was fab. The staff and manageress were amazing. Linsey and Lynn were so lovely with my 82year old mam ..Lynn went upstairs and got a lovely tray with a pot of tea for my mam. Excellent service, lovely surroundings and good value for money. Definitely booking again for Xmas...

Liked · The evening meal in the Bistro was very good, and there was a buzz in the Bistro. The staff were great and very helpful. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from service could have been a little quicker. Disliked · Our room 201 needed a makeover badly, the décor was tired, as was the bed, there were not enough sockets and only 50% of the lights worked. The most annoying thing was the toilet, liquids were disposed of but anything else just stayed where it was, I reported this to reception when I went down for breakfast, the lady was apologetic, but in my opinion not bothered. My wife was quite upset that we were leaving the room dirty, we would not do this at home and would not to expect to have this problem at a hotel either, no amount of flushing or pouring water down the bowl would clear it. One other point when we were eating our evening meal we kept getting wafts of smoke from the smokers outside some how we were getting the dirty second hand smoke, the table sitting next to ours commented on this as well. The smoker's should be forced away from the building.

Afternoon tea for 60+ guests - room beautifully laid out, staff attentive and extremely helpful. Food delicious with a wide variety of cakes. The balance of savoury v sweet options could perhaps be adjusted. Particular thanks go to Kelsey on reception for his lovely manners and helpfulness. A big thank you to the lady staff member who rescued me from a wine spillage and gave great gin advice - I am so very sorry I did not get your name. You and Lynn were great company and to be admired for your patience and unflappability when the evening meals for 30+ got a touch chaotic. A ‘reet good do’ for my Mum who smiled throughout. Thank-you to all involved from the Mitcheson clan.

Visiting for drinks and Sunday lunch. Outside seating area was lovely. There was an England match on so we had reserved a seat Outside but went inside to watch some of the match, the service both inside and out was excellent and we went back Outside later to have our Meal. We both had the beef dinner which was the best Sunday dinner I've had out for a few years, everything was cooked to perfection, lots of beef, many types of veg some of them oven roasted, perfect Yorkshire pud, even an extra gravy boat full of lovely thick gravy. Washed down with a nice bottle of pinot grigio. Perfect afternoon
