    Our favourite thing was the woodland path right across from the hotel, we had a lovely walk in the morning and saw red squirrels! Walk on further for beautiful paths and pine forests! It was also convenient being able to eat at the hotel as it is in the middle of nowhere. My meal was fresh and delicious, my partners was dry. Food a bit expensive.

    The hotel/rooms are not 'newly renovated', the whole place feels ancient. The room was comfortable but noisy. The fire alarm went off at 2am and we all piled outside. Breakfast was really average.

    Loved the rural surroundings and gardens. The games room was good too

    We were outnumbered by the coach parties who took over the bar area for a while but do understand that this large hotel must rely on this business. The premises and furnishings though clean and well-maintained were not of the most up to date styles, but this may be a positive for some people.

    Its fantastic location. The old building well looked afterand the room was very big.The dining room staff were very polite and friendly.

    The esuite was very old and the mixer tap didnt work ,so my husband nearly got burned with the water.

    The beds were very uncomfortable which resulted in both of us having back ache, the shower was either boiling hot or stone cold. Breakfast was rubbish & very small. Some of the staff were very abrupt.

    An excellent hotel in a remote setting, a bit of old world charm which is sadly missing from this world. Seems to be popular with coach parties so may be quite busy despite the rural location. If you like red squirrels you will love this place.

    The setting is peaceful and beautiful, yet it is only ten minutes drive from the m6. The hotel has a very attractive frontage, with an impressive entrance and foyer, reminding me of Swiss mountain hotels. The staff were friendly and helpful. This is the second time I have stayed here and would happily stay again.

    Tea,coffee, hot drink facility in the bedroom was very wecome after a long drive to get there. The evening meal and full english breakfast was very good.

    Lovely hotel, set in beautiful surroundings. Quite remote but we found this very appealing. The local village is about 2-3 mins drive away & has a few pubs & chippy. The full english breakfast was very tasty & we found the hotel staff very friendly.

    The bar could do with selling more non-alcoholic hot drinks-the only choices were tea & coffee, which are complementary in the room.
