Our room was spacious,modern and clean with plenty of storage space, iron and ironing board and even an unsecured hairdryer so no need to press a button continuously. Bed linen of good quality and bed large and comfortable. One complaint would be the same for all hotels really and that is the need for a lighter weight duvet for a... More

What a find! We booked this hotel last minute and were unsure what it would be like. The room was lovely and large - bed was a bit soft but that was the only complaint as such. Breakfast was wonderful and not the standard run of the mill choices. Also had dinner in the hotel and had a lovely meal.... More

Have stayed here before which is why I chose to stay again. Room was a lot smaller this time, but I wasn't concerned as it was a business trip. The food here is always nice and the staff always friendly.

I have three fairly recent visits here, the staff are friendly, the decor is modern and smart, everything is clean and the food is excellent. The chips are truly delightful and there aren't many chefs who can cook pigeon to the standard that this one does. I had the £25 fillet steak dish too which was delicious and cooked exactly... More

Stayed one night with a group of 18 people last week. Our room was extremely comfortable and the bed nice and comfy. Shower and bathroom was modern and in good state. Please attend to seal round the main bedroom door as this lets a lot of light in at night. We dined in the restaurant and can't recommend this highly... More

Lovely comfy room, excellent en suite, delightful menu, great service, very reasonable rates. This hotel is a gem, the room rates are very good for the area, and the staff are very friendly. The quality and presentation of the food is top class. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, and will defiantly be returning. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was great, very clean and lovely decor. The breakfast was really good, and all the staff were polite and friendly. Had a drink in the bar one night and they had good selection of wine , and it was a friendly atmosphere. Really nice place , I would definitely stay again.
