Dear Reviewer, We are all thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us , and we were given the opportunity to host your parents golden wedding anniversary. The cheesecake is gorgeous I agree as I always ask if chef as a spare one. In the meantime thank you again for your wonderful review

Poorly staffed saved by a stunning location.

Dear reviewer , we do not normally pass comment on individuals but when a guest decides to verbally abuse one of our team we will defend ourselves with the facts listed below :- 1, John has never had negative comments posted on trip advisor before in fact you will only ever read positive remarks about him many many times over, therefore the fact that you were asked to keep the noise down after midnight by john when other paying guests wished to sleep and not listen to your singing is only fair and respectful by john that he asked you to do so, and you choose to ignore his requests is disrespectful, if you had decided to stay in an hotel and were kept up all night by other guests I am sure you would get upset with the hotel for doing nothing about it. 2, Your bride and groom very kindly provided a token to each of you to provide a drink upto the value of £5 not a £5 note to be taken off rounds of drinks, as the bill is actually picked up by them for the actual value of drinks purchased we do not gain anything extra at all and the drinks you mentioned are actually priced as follows a pint of carling £3.95 a pint of Guinness £4.25. Not the prices you stated which is extremely good value. Overall we would like to thank you for your positive comments regarding our hotel and facilities but as previously stated personal written attacks of our team will be robustly defended with the actual facts being stated
