I stayed here with a group of twenty people who thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The staff were hospitable and extremely helpful in arranging transport. Secondly the rooms were large, clean and speaking on behalf of the group we all had a decent nights kip. Most importantly, the hotel was extremely fair priced. The plus points for this hotel is the... More

The Fairway offers excellent value for money on its 2 for 1 meals during the week. Its has a spacious lounge along with a great variety on its menu. Location is second to none and has a section both for children and an adults only, from which the latter leads out onto a terraced drinking area. Food quality is very... More

Very basic, and very outdated. The complex Could do with a full refurb as it looks ok from the outside, but in the inside it's like being in a time warp to the time of the Bee Gees and Abba. Premier room nothing special, would be interesting to see what a basic room looked like. Decent bar downstairs. Beds comfortable... More

The hotel looks modern and is part of a pub- the room was large and the bed comfortable despite it feeling like you rolled towards the middle! I tried the Tv and found no aerial or remote- guess someone fancied them for their home and despite reporting it nothing happened. The rooms are a little tired and need a refresh,... More

We like the atmosphere in the bluebell restaurant but have decided not to visit again because food quality is poor, we watched as plates of food which were hardly touched were cleared from tables obviously like us people had left uneaten food this is a shame because the staff try hard to make a visit pleasant

Plenty of positives: All staff very friendly and helpful. Check-in was very quick. Good-sized room and bathroom. Connected to the free wifi within seconds. Very comfortable bed, which seemed a bit narrow but was no problem. Extra heater provided. Quiet location. Plenty of free parking. Just a few negatives, mainly that the floors are creaky - I tried my best... More
