Outstanding service and value, excellent and efficient staff, make this hotel a success. We had no great expectations, because although we often use Weatherspoons pubs elsewhere, we see them as cheap boozers with a sometimes slightly dodgy clientele. This hotel is very different. For a start, the welcome was a lot better than that which we got last weekend at... More

The overall experience of this hotel is very good. The room was large and very well decorated with comfortable beds and and nice touches (Free water and biscuits) the bathroom was large with a window! it was warm and comfortable. The room rate was amazing value and the food was cheap as chips, but that maybe cos it was chips.

Clean hotel but beds absolutely awful. Really uncomfortable and small. Every time we moved the other person was woken up. Freezing my cold or boiling hot. The church bells were lovely first thing in morning. Went out for a decent breakfast. You get what you pay for .....

Stayed here for one night when attending Thursford Show. Convenient for show location. Found the staff welcoming and the room comfortable. Bought breakfast which was served quickly and was of very good quality. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you.

Booked though Booking.com and got excellent rate. The room was ok, and certainly slept well. Breakfast in morning was "heroic" - with endless refills on the coffee. Parking easy - just outside the door, provided you are on your way by 9 am
