The new management team are very energetic and have a good plan to bring the property back to It's full potential. Wonderful packed breakfast to take on the road. Quality of surrounding roads is not good, but the views are spectacular!

Inadequate staffing to manage the restaurant and bar in the evening. Did not have enough of a certain item on the menu. Steaks were over cooked and dry. Waiting period was longer than an hour and a half.

We love going to Hogsback. It is a beautiful little village, absolutely majestic. The locals are so friendly, you feel welcome everywhere. The Hogsback Inn Hotel is a lovely place to stay, with an "old school" feel. Wonderful food and friendly staff.
