Attended my friends' wedding here recently. Wow! What a beautiful place. Perfect setting for a very special day. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we stepped through the doors by all staff. Everything was so well organised. Would highly recommend this place. A++

Pleasant welcome in reception and shown to room, complimentary fruit and glass of sherry! Big room with 2 shash windows and comfy big bed, nicely furnished. Modern bathroom with a TV! Well equipped, but expensive mini bar. Evening meal - very attentive and friendly staff and 2 courses for £20 - very good value for money, nice food too. Place...

With Judges being our wedding venue 3 years ago now it holds a special place in my heart. I've attended Judges for meals, overnight stays and afternoon teas on regular occasions and I must say last weekend did not disappoint. As an additional birthday treat for Mums 60th I brought her here for a delicious afternoon tea, along with my...

Nice external setting building looks great from outside, lacking inside. Tired decor, mediocre service , food so so average lacked the special feel that the outside of the building promised. Overall disappointing.

I was sorry to read this review especially given the review that is above it. I have asked the author if they would tell me when they visited, so that I could address any staff re-training, and also which areas they felt were in need of attention. Disappointingly, as yet, I have not had a response to either question. Despite...

I attended a wedding at this venue on the 1st February 2017. I was shocked that myself and many of the other guests were forced to move our own tables. This night was poorly managed from beginning to end. I strongly dissuade anyone from using this venue. I will say that it is not the fault of many of the...

I am told that the Bride and Groom were very happy throughout the whole of the event and highly praised my team both on the day iteslf as well as on departure the next day. Paul, my Banqueting Manager, personally did move two tables slightly to accommodate the evening entertainment as the band took up more space than had been...

We had a family wedding here and it was just incredible. All the staff were fabulous, they couldn't have done more to make sure the wedding went smoothly and without a hitch. The rooms were immaculate, well stocked with fruit, soft drinks and a full mini bar. Breakfast was perfect, wide selection to chose from and the waitress was really...

This was a two night stay in December 2016. I checked in late and the process was simple enough. This is an old world small hotel with a large number of stairs and as one can expect from this type of building somewhat of a quirky layout. I had a quick drink in the bar which was cozy and the...

Thank you very much for your review following your stay with us last December. My housekeeping and the evening turn-down teams do check that the temperature of our rooms has been set to our standard level and so I was sorry to read that your room was not sufficiently warm on arrival. I am glad though that my team did...

Wonderful hotel with great staff who did everything to make a great evening. We were enjoying a 60th birthday and the food and service were exceptional. The rooms were very comfortable although a choice of pillows would be desirable. Breakfast was great. Would unquestionably recommend anyone looking to stay in the area. So close to the A19 but in beautiful...
