Having been to this hotel earlier in the year and liked it so much, we decided to return for the New Year break with National Holidays. It was all and more than we could have expected. On arrival we were greeted by Diane who invited us into the bar where she served hot punch and hot mince pies. Here she... More

As a group going for a New Years break with National Express, we had researched previous reviews when we decided to stay at this hotel. The entertainment was good, although the New Year's Day entertainment was so good, that it should have had top billing for the New Year's Eve! Staffing was a little sparse, and meal service was not... More

Spent a fantastic Christmas at this wonderful family run hotel. The family could not do enough for you. We had a loose hande on the shower in our bathroom it was dealt with immediately. The food and entertainment was first class. The rooms and hotel were clean and welcoming. We will definately return!

I organized a large political event for 105 people on Saturday 13th December. We were treated to a fabulous hot and cold buffet. The food really was superb, so much so that I have booked for our next funcion in February, 2015.

I stayed here with my family for a birthday celebration and I was impressed. We had 3 'superior' rooms, which have recently been refurbished and they were all spacious, well appointed and clean. The rooms were quiet (throughout the night) and the beds were all comfortable. The restaurant was very good in the evening and at breakfast. All the staff... More

I was very impressed with the service my friends and I received when we stayed here just a couple of weeks ago. One of my friends was wheelchair bound and was located on the ground floor. We were very happy with our rooms. They were clean and with a small fridge and flat screen tv there was more than enough... More
