Leave wanting more - that's what we are doing!! We have had a fabulous stay and would recommend your hotel unreservedly. You have created a lovely friendly atmosphere in what is already an amazing hotel that certainly captures the atmosphere of the 14th century with the creature comforts of the 21st century!! And the food!! Top notch. Thanks for a everything.

The biggest regret my girlfriend and I had from our week through the lakes and up to Scotland was that we only stayed for 1 night in this place! We both had a ball! Staff... Amazing, Location... STUNNING, Room... Fantastic and the breakfast even better. A beautiful old building was absolutely perfect for a young couple. The bar downstairs was very friendly with darts, pool and cards to keep anyone happy! Clearly the hub of a loving community and a memorable stay! Absolutely LOVED IT! Thank you!!!!

A few weeks ago we stopped off for a meal as we were passing. We were so impressed, we spent the night there this weekend. It was lovely. Very friendly staff, the room was lovely and the food (dinner and breakfast) were superb. We hope to stay again in the future. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings.
