….we couldn’t help reflect (as we sat by the log fire in a brief lull) that since we took back control of the hotel on 1st November 2017 we have had 18 reviews on tripadvisor. Of those, 17 have given us a five star rating whilst the other gave us four stars. It has, as one reviewer said, been an astonishing transformation. It is all made possible by marvellous teamwork from everyone here – and of course, wonderfully supportive customers. We have more exciting plans for the hotel as we go into the New Year but in the meantime: thank you one and all, and every good wish to you and your families for 2018.
