I had read a few reviews on this hotel & was very pleasantly suprised, from the moment we arrived the staff were great, helpful & friendly. We had a four poster room wich was clean & spacious, the bathroom was modern with realy nice decor & a spar bath.
we went to the bar for a few drinks before we got ready for ndinner & have to say the young man how served us was friendly & chatty (not stuffy & distant like some) the bar is a nice mix of upright talbes & chairs & comfy chairs & sofa's.
There are some lovely quirky detals around the place, one of the lamps in the entrance to the bar caught my eye.
We had a realy nice shower (hot instantly) & went down for a meal in the restraunt.
The food was of a very good standard as was the service.
I had steak while my wife had fried sea bass, I particularly liked the had cut chips
we had several drinks in the bar before retireing to our room.
Our room was at the back of the hotel so raod noise was not an issue for us we both slept well.
Breakfast was again very nice & of good quality, I liked the sausages, as I would say they were cumberland or similar.
All in all we had a great stay & were pleased that the drinks were reasonably priced, which is a nice change for a hotel.
We have done several stay & dine trips this year & this was one of the best ! less

We do place great emphasis here on customer care and feedback such as yours is a delight for everyone to see. Our sausages by the way are from our local supplier Thornbury Meats who make them to our own recipe.
