The Manager, staff and food make up for everything. We were the manager's first coach tour as he has only been there a few weeks, well he was brilliant. He... More

The hotel was very warm & welcoming. The room was fine with the bathroom needing a bit of TLC but otherwise plenty of room & all you would need for a comfortable stay. The staff could not do enough for you , were very friendly & obliging & the food was plentiful & good
