Welcome to the Millstream Hotel, a family owned and run property since 1976. We hope you enjoy your visit with us, whether it be enjoying a drink or afternoon tea, an evening meal, or a stay for a few nights. The gardens that surround the hotel are carefully tended and provide a wonderful place to relax in the warmer weather. Overlooking the stream in the side garden is an oak Gazebo which provides shelter from the rain or sun. In the summer months there are tables and chairs at which you can enjoy morning coffee, a light lunch, afternoon tea, a cocktail before dinner or an al fresco meal as the sun comes down.

We include unique touches with every stay with us. Guests will enjoy a complimentary glass of wine or hot drink on arrival, personal check-in and rooming, plus full cooked to order breakfast with all stays (apart from room only rates).

We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel where you can be assured of the very best attention.
