“JAMES TAYLOR provided the following review via the Classic Britain website:
An excellent hotel, which is well run and friendly. The situation and accommodation is excellent, too. I have been here many times and it never disappoints. Unreservedly recommended.
Cozy yet elegant. Wonderful staff with outstanding local knowledge. Excellent value for money”
“Very homely and far more personalised than a chain hotel”
“The hotel excels in providing the guest the many small but very appreciated details. The sherry decanter was an excellent bonus and welcome after the long drive. Loved the homely feel of the honesty bar!”
“A lovely stay for a special birthday celebration. Heavenly room – we will be back!”

“My Mother and I arrived tired and aching. We were greeted by the friendliest of receptionists and taken to the top floor, where we found the most charming of roof top bedrooms. Shoes off, feet up and a complimentary dram of sherry was absolutely delightful.”
