My friend and I have just had lunch here and it was really good. Food was piping hot and of a good quality and quantity! There were two for one deals and a large range to chose from. The staff were friendly and our food was ready in a reasonable time. Will certainly return.

This was our first visit to this hotel and we experienced some good points and some that were not. The room was spacious and the evening meal was perfectly ok. However in our room which faced the A628 we could hear low level road noise although there was double glazing. The water in the sink took ages to drain away... More
