We stayed here for 2 nights from 17/4/14, as my niece was having her wedding reception here. I believe this was the first wedding reception held here since the new management took over. Everything ran very smoothly, the food was amazing, & the staff went out of their way to ensure all went well. I can highly recommend this hotel... More

As contractors, we look for a clean hotel room & a place for a pint! Here, we got much more, excellent service & a menu to suit every taste. The meals are excellent with the chef introducing new meals each night. Couldn't do enough for us! & all for a very nice price!

I had the pleasure of staying here for business.The hotel has a way to make you feel you are staying with family,the staff are more like friends.The food on offer was in my opinion of top quality and why more locals do not dine here is their loss.Mike keep up the good work in the kitchen.

Positives: Great location, friendly staff & lovely cooked breakfast. Before I done this review I did look for a direct email address for the hotel as I would have preferred to have given my view that way, unfortunately I didn't find one. I was extremely disappointed with the standard of room we were allocated (room 5) for our overnight stay.... More
