My 1st ever coach holiday. Just got back. Can't praise this hotel enough. Fantastic staff. Great atmosphere. Lovely, spotless room. Delicious, freshly made home cooked food. Would definitely recommend. I'm looking forward to going again. Soon as I can get to the booking office.

Spent Easter weekend here on a coach trip. Very friendly, family run hotel. Bedroom and public areas clean and inviting. Food was very good, fresh and well-cooked with a choice of menu at breakfast and dinner, and second helpings offered at every meal. All-in-all a very warm and welcoming hotel with exceptional staff.

We have stayed here many times and have made friends with countless others who also stay multiple times. You really can't beat the value for money and the quality and quantity... More

This is a welcoming friendly hotel. The food is fab, and the staff great really enjoyed our stay and all being well will go there again in the spring. The decorations were the best we have ever seen in any hotel and the evening entertainment was great especially the brass band on Xmas night.
