    5/5 Excellent

    Lovely spacious room. Clean. Nicely decorated. Quiet ( back of hotel). Staff all helpful and friendly but particular praise must go to Sophie who booked us in and showed us 5 rooms to chose from. Breakfast excellent. Lovely log fire to sit by for a drink. Very welcoming . Cheap parking over the road although you can’t pay in advance before 0800. Suggest using JustPark App to save getting out of bed!

    Parking. No advice given before arriving. Parking possible but difficult for those not familiar with surrounding. Had to get up at 8am to put another ticket on car. Booking using Amex card, but property would not take Amex (Duh). Bathroom basin plug did not work.
