I stayed here recently with a few colleagues for one night. And that was enough. It's ok if you are on a stop off overnight and moving on quickly but don't book it for anything else. Why ruin your day? The room, as other reviewers have said, are tired. My bed, which was narrower than any other I've ever slept... More

Stayed here overnight while attending a birthday party in the function room. Receptionist was polite and welcoming. We were given room no. 1 which was abit unfortunate (as will explain later). Room was a little tired but clean. Mattresses soggy and dipping in middle. Whenever the loo was flushed the pipes made very loud noises and had to run cold... More

Large party in situ on a Wednesday night. Had to wait over an hour for food. This happened in the run up to Christmas too. We got a free drink for the inconvenience. Just to advise we weren't the only ones waiting over an hour. Once food came it was good but not worth one hours wait

As you approach the hotel looks quite impressive perched slightly above the road and has ample parking spaces available. We were there celebrating a 40th birthday and with its seperate large function room it was a good venue for this purpose and the buffet served during the night was very good. However that is where it ended, our family room... More

A freshly cooked breakfast served by a lovely young lady (alix) is the perfect way to start the day.

I have visited this hotel several times in recent months together with a female friend for drinks and for lunch. The premises are very large, with a generously sized car park, and a very spacious dining and drinking area, in a pleasant semi-rural location. The staff generally appear to be efficient and courteous, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the drinks... More

Stayed for two nights as a family and had two rooms in this hotel. The rooms are clean but starting to look tired and could do with a bit of an update decoration. The ensuite bathroom was spacious but the switch to change from taps to shower was not working in one room and difficult to move in the other.... More

BUT- When eating on the normal weekend prices, the food seems to be over cooked and not of good quality. My husbands steak was awful last weekend, fatty and poor quality cooked to cremation on a medium well done order. I mentioned it when paying nothing done about it at all. Previously I went on a weekend and food again... More

Good for kids and the staff were friendly and polite, apart from forgetting all our kids meals. The food however, is woeful. Meat cooked to death and dried out salads. Basic stuff done very badly, and not particularly cheap.

We waited 90mins for our food, when it did come we were all served at different times and half of... More
