If you're planning a special event such as a wedding then you will should consider this venue. The location is amazing and the staff so helpful and friendly. Especially wedding organiser Kerry and toast master Sam. Helped us have the most amazing day.

First impressions excellent, large good looking organised hotel. Meals nice but service in the restaurant by few of the staff could be more customer facing and focused. The plates didn't get removed quickly and the waiter ran off with my money had to remind him to bring it back. But generally most staff were good and the cleaners seemed pleasant... More

Our experience of this hotel was very good, staff were friendly and helpful but tables in the bar were left dirty and it was tired in places, along the corridors and in the bar. Our room was good and very clean. The leisure centre was superb, there are various gyms from CV rooms to resistance suites and the pool area... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and played golf courses. The rooms were comfortable and the food and service in the restaurant was excellent. The only thing that let the hotel down were the scruffy corridors to our room and the bar could have done with a good clean. Window sills were cluttered with dead flies and the tables looked...

Whoever did the rating for this hotel had better have another look at it. I have never been in a place that has so many flies!, and what's more the staff don't seem particularly concerned about it. The bar managers must never have had a large group staying there at the same time as the bars ran out of most... More
