Always a problem on a Saturday night. It was the shower that was nearly the thing which pushed us over the... More

We couldn't get into our preferred hotel in this area and had no choice but to book this hotel, in spite of other negative reviews, but we were not quite prepared for the total lack of basic amenities. We arrived with our wedding guest outfits in suit carriers, on hangers, but there was no wardrobe, no rail, no coat hooks,... More

Breakfast was included, which was cooked perfectly,... More

Went for dinner. Staff very accommodating and helpful. I was with a person who ate small portions. They had Scampi and kindly only charged for a child's portion, it really wasn't but also not too large a portion. I had chicken & chorizo wrap. Was lovely. Fab wee pub tea. X
