We went to a party here on Saturday evening. Two function rooms were booked, one having a 'cash only' bar and the other having a buffet. A disco was also provided in the bar area. The bar was small but the staff worked well to serve quickly. Usual high hotel prices as expected. Decor isn't brilliant - all looks a... More

I stayed a single night here in December when I booked a junior sweet with booking.com. A little later I received an email from the hotel apologizing for the inconvenience but there had been a mix up and they did not have the room I booked available. Then I received another email saying to disregard the previous email, and then... More

The function room was booked for a Christmas party with our band and included a 3 course meal, disco and casino. We found that casino tables were so small that everyone was crowded around and the last people arrived couldn't participate. It did not help at all trying to socialise with people around, and later after the meal, the casino... More

We arrived for a Christmas Party night and got pretty much what we expected (after checking reviews by others): Average food, poor service in a tired hotel run mainly by agency staff that were only there for the Christmas business. Priced at £38.50 pp for meal & disco it is priced in the mid to upper range for a Christmas... More

We stayed in a mini suite with our babies. The longe area was very small with a very old sofa bed, chair, table for kettle, desk and tv on a stand. It was nice to have this extra space but the sofa bed was really low and not comfortable to sit on. The bedroom was a good size, nice plain... More

I would have liked to have rated this hotel higher, but there were a couple of problems and honesty needs to be reflected in this review. This is a lovely old style hotel, not over modernised in a great setting. I found the staff helpful and polite and the room quite acceptable. A few problems are to be expected with... More

Me and my partner stayed in the family room with our 2 children. On arrival staff seemed very rude and not very approachable. Room was very disappointing considering the price we paid for it. Shower trickled out which made it almost impossible to wash in! A lot of noise could be heard from our room including people being intimate with... More
