We found it handy with our equipment, to park next to our door and unload the kit. We felt the rooms were a reasonable size, bathroom was a bit...

The hotel was lovely, we had an evening meal on the Friday night which was superb. We also booked breakfast which was excellent, lots of choice from the...

Had a lovely Afternoon Tea at The Honest Lawyer Hotel yesterday (April 13th 2017). Sandwiches, cakes and scones.....the bread and fillings for the sandwiches was just right.
