Enjoyed a long weekend break with a coach trip stayed 3 nights. Our double room contained 3 beds and was very large. Plenty of tea and coffee. A very small TV and no hairdryer although you can get one from reception. The food was buffet style and plentiful. Always 2 different roasts in the evening and various vegetarian options. At...

As anyone who has stayed here you will know that the outside could definitely do with a lick of paint and a bit of tlc however the inside is clean warm and welcoming. The rooms could do with a bit...

Meals were half board and help yourself but there were staff around to help with the toaster and refilling all the time. There was a carvery every night with the chef serving the... More

Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff and it all added up to a lovely holiday. There was a 99p bar and this added to... More

We believed the management deliberately withheld the information... More

This was clearly stated on our website at the time it was closed (although it is open now, which is why nothing is mentioned now) I... More
