Nice staff and a great location; its a sort of shame really about the rest of it. Very very out of date rooms as is the rest of the hotel. Lupe warm shower this morning rather than a hot one. Looks lovely on the website and with an upgrade would no doubt be amazing. Overall however run into the ground...

We stayed here for a wedding, and the everything was very nice. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The wedding was beautiful and went off without a hitch thanks to the hotel staff. Neat grounds, free parking, good breakfast buffet, and close to both the moors and the village center.

We stayed here for one night whilst at a wedding close by. We checked in at 11.30 pm via the night porter, a process that took nearly 10 minutes, not exactly fast. (Friends had worse, as the night porter prioritised the bar over check in!!!). Room was big and airy, decor if slightly dated but the bed was great and...
