Had high hopes for this hotel but found it to be rather overpriced and the food nothing to write home about. The staff were quite friendly and helpful but the rooms, by their own admission, needed a refurb. Views lovely.

Wanted somewhere to have an evening meal on our first night of holiday and found this location on the internet. Very friendly staff, amazing views and good food. No annoying music in the background which is a pleasant change.

If memory serves, in the old hotel building any of the rooms at the front should have good views. I think I stayed in room 5. The views are lovely and stretch as far away as at least Bredon Hill nr Tewkesbury.
