Average hotel with friendly staff who work very hard . The place needs some investment as it is quite dated . As others have commented the food portions were very misery and not of high quality . Overall though we had a nice stay here .

We booked a weekend here - they accepted our deposit and then emailed to inform us that the price was twice what we expected. When I referred them to my confirmation email, they just said that the price was wrong. Needless to say our weekend is cancelled and we are going somewhere else.

arrived sunday for a three night break d/b/b. hotel looks good from the outside but a bit sparse inside. The reception manager was friendly and a bit rushed with us. Our room 26 was ideal and well worth the money although the bed was softer than i would normally use. I was concerned about the peeling ceiling paper and the... More
