We booked two nights stay in March through Booking.com but as with a previous reviewr, it is a false economy as the room were were shown, was small, overlooked extractor fans, dirty, broken TV and remote......supposedly over 50% discount. The reception staff were good and managed to find us a twin room. The room was large but dated furniture and... More

Went with a large group of friends and had a great time. Food was great (they can't cook a steak though!) Wine a bit on the expensive side. Rooms very old fashioned but clean and tidy. Swimming pool was quiet but freezing cold!

We've stayed with friends in this hotel for 1 night over Easter weekend, occupied rooms 206 and 207. The location and facade of the hotel are nice, but that is it. Everything inside the rooms was dated and filthy. Bathtub probably wasn't decently cleaned for years. Totally disgusting! But worst of all in both rooms we were bitten by bed... More

Yet again we took advantage of the pre-season offer. We enjoyed our stay and as usual the food was very good. The hotel itself is looking very tired and in need of redecoration, but the service was friendly and helpful - everyone made our stay enjoyable. We hope that any updating doesn't spoil the atmosphere and the ambience of the... More

Very helpful staff, good food and lovely gardens ensured a pleasant stay in a well equipped garden view room. This was our second visit to the hotel and we were not disappointed. We shall hopefully stay there again one day.

Having recently returned from the Palace where everything was as good as the last time we hope the change of chef will not alter the amazing menu. The staff could not do enough to make our stay memorable. The rooms were brilliant and we made good use of all of the amenities. A relaxing lounge in the evening with music... More
