Carpets totally discusting.... More

Attended for the new year casino night. Didn't use the bedrooms due to living locally but imagine they were nice based on the hotel appearance. Had a nice enough evening but the food was terrible. Not sure whether this was because we were eating off an adjusted menu but other people seemed to be suffering similar issues to us with... More

On arrival, service was slow at reception but throughout my two night stay always pleasant and polite. After a four hour journey, a drink was well needed to relax after such a long jaunt up the country. Sadly the service was slow at the bar too. By the time I joined work colleagues in the restaurant, the reason why service... More
