Beautiful place, overpriced breakfast

Over all had a very lovely stay.

We had the four poster bed and spa bath room. Staff were brilliant, very freindly and helpful. Breakfast was over priced, a standard fry up being nearly 12 pounds. If visiting again I would ask for a room at the back of the hotel as all night all you can hear is lorrys on the busy road. But I would definitely stay again as was pleased with customer service and it's not far from the town.

having read some of the reviews i was a little concerned but came with an open mind.

Check in was friendly and quick. Room was excellent quality, comfy bed and a newly refurbed bathroom . I eat in the bar in the evening, service was good and attentive, and the food was of a good standard presented well and very tasty. And to the people who moaned that every thing creaked, well I am 55 and I creak this building is many years older so expect creaking floors and doors and low ceilings etc its all part of a very very old building.
