The staff are most welcoming and do anything to help, they carry all the luggage up to the rooms. The food is excellent and plenty of choice. Always... More

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.

My only criticism would be that our twin room was rather too narrow for 2 beds however for a 4 night stay it... More
