Hidden Gem.
The hotel exceeded expectations. Food and service was great. Bar and restraint was busy when we stayed at a weekend. Quiet location.

Okay but wouldn't return
Stayed at this hotel having previously stayed at the Low Wood bay Hotel which is the sister hotel of the Wild Boar although we had not idea of this when booking. Arrived and checked - in, parking okay but not great but got a space. We were given a room right at the end of the hotel. Hairs in bath, tv didn't work and internet wouldn't reach the room. Maintenance man came and fixed the tv whllst my partner sat in the bathroom as she had just got a shower. They did re-set the internet which worked for about 5 minutes but then reverted back to not working, basically the signal wasn't strong enough. There is no phone signal at the hotel so this made it difficult for anyone to get hold of us. Hotel itself is really based around the pub as the room we were given was worn and tired. No real sound proofing as light gets under the doors and also it sounded like upstairs were re-modelling the room. Breakfast was good. Whilst we were given a round of free drinks to compensate for the issues, would I return to this hotel again?.....absolutely not...simply not worth £125 a night.

Perfect stay
What an amazing find! Only booked two weeks before our visit and didn’t know much about the area. This place is beautiful, the staff are so friendly and helpful. The place is decorated in a traditional style and has three log fires to cozy up infront of. The food was fabulous! We had dinner and afternoon tea over the two nights we were there. It does stand alone and we were aware of this before we booked so really wasn’t an issue as we didn’t want to leave anyway. Thank you for a great stay!
