I would recommend any guest to avoid the cottage rooms within this hotel. Although the room was nice I didn't manage a wink of sleep due to the continuous noise of traffic - extremely disappointed wit... more

Thank you for your review and comments, I do apologise if you found there was an unacceptable level of noise from the road, I would say on the whole it is not at a level to disturb guests from their sleep but we all have different tolerances on noise levels. We only have 10 rooms in this location and the remaining 53 rooms are not located near the road and I would be happy to allocate you one of these rooms should you decide to stay with us again. regards, Andrew.

Hoe standards have dropped

Have stayed at this hotel before nearly two years ago. What a shame. The standards have dropped considerably. The menu in the restaurant has NOT changed. The staff were slightly sour and either overwo... more

Thank you for your review and feedback, I'm sorry if you felt your stay was not as good as the last time you stayed with us. We are constantly refurbishing rooms and have some excellent feedback about them, it would be most useful if you had put your room number as I don't believe we have any tired rooms. We have two types of towel radiators and both of these come on with a timer, some of these can be adjusted by guests but again as you haven't given the room number I can't comment, obviously they should be working at certain times of the day and could have been fixed if you had reported it during stay. The sign is obviously to warn people when the radiator is actually turned on. I'm assuming you had buffet style breakfast which we offer when the hotel is extra busy and offer scrambled eggs, fried eggs can be ordered but we do not need 24 hours notice, I'm assuming a communication issue with your waiter. As with a lot of hotels the wedding market something we look to capture but I do not agree it's at the detriment of our other customers although admittedly it can be busier which can sometimes mean a slower service than if there was no wedding. We are a family owned and run business for the last 12 years and have consistently increased the scores in our yearly AA inspection. I believe we offer a fantastic product which represent value for money. I'm sure if you did stay with us again we would meet with your expectations. Regards, Andrew.

Simple things not right but fair for one night stay

31/08/2017 dreamdancer96, north yorkshire

We stayed here when visiting relatives. I don't think I would stay again as some of the basic and small things are missing. On arrival there was no space in the car park (but a stack of rubbish and bu... more

Thank you for your review and comments. The hotel does have over 100 car park spaces which is generally enough for a 63 bedroom hotel, I do believe we had a function on during your stay and therefore the car park was busier than normal. The area you describe is at the rear of the hotel and is used for maintenance and delivery items, some items are very heavy and cannot simply be moved. I'm sorry you found your experience at dinner and breakfast not the best but I'm pleased you enjoyed the food. I will certainly raise these issues with the team. I would have to say the majority of 3 star hotels do not offer air-con in bedrooms and nor do we advertise the fact that we do although fans can be provided for the occasional night in the UK when it's actually hot. Regards, Andrew.

Lovely stay

We were visiting the wildlife trusts in the area and chose this hotel by chance. There was a wedding going on but we were placed in the cottages which were far enough away to not be disturbed. The hot... more
