Negative Reviews

It helps to like dogs

As this property is pet-friendly, it helps if you like dogs. Several previous guests weren't too impressed with the barking coming from other rooms. Also, one guest mentions that Great Danes were spotted relaxing on the sofa in front of the fire - leaving little room for guests to sit down.

Wi-Fi may disappoint

A number of guests mention that they found the Wi-Fi at the hotel a little disappointing. Specifically, although it seems to be okay in the restaurant and some of the rooms, the signal in the separate cottage appears to be non-existent.

Full English costs extra

Only a continental breakfast is included in the rate - a fact that disappointed a number of guests. Plus, some guests also mention that they found the price of the upgrade to a full English was a little too high.
