room very clean and nicely decorated. wonderful views from our room. breakfast ok . bacon a little undercooked. kippers very nice. fantastic friendly staff. A hotel for coach parties not for couples. But we had a very comfortable stay. The hotel could do with a little maintenance work to the balconies.

For the price we paid, it wasn't bad at all. It's close to town, limited onsite (but plenty of offroad) parking. The furniture, carpets and fittings were worse for wear but otherwise clean. Bathroom reminded me of uni halls! There is wifi but signal is limited to the reception and bar area. Given it's location the hotel does have potential... More

Although this Hotel needs some TLC the staff make up for its shortfalls. They were helpful, friendly and went the extra mile to make our visit a good one. The meals were excellent, very hot, a good choice and huge portions. If you have mobility problems please mention when booking as the lift does not service all floors. Worth paying... More

Ok price, but old hotel with old guests. Friendly staff! Why do these kind of hotels exist? Why not doing regular painting, renovation, new furniture etc.? This way, one day, only busses with coffee trip tourist will come. Its actually a nice location with a nice view. A pity.
