My husband bought a Groupon deal for afternoon tea and this must be one of the best deals we have bought!! The staff (apart from the main reception staff) were so attentive, friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and beautifully served. One of the best afternoon teas we have ever had!! Will definitely return!

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel's Cafe Bar. As you quite rightly say, the cafe had a complete make over last year, and we removed part of the wall between the bar and the hotel, which gave us a lot more space and much brighter area. We are very pleased with the results, and... More

Had a lovely night stay here at the beginning of January. Reception staff were helpful and friendly, a special thanks to Gillian Bennie whose assistance with the booking was greatly appreciated. Our meal was superb couldn't fault it, and our executive room was very spacious and comfortable. We will definitely visit again and recommend to family and friends.

Great welcome and the reception staff immediately greeted me with the knowledge that I had checked in on line that was brilliant. I booked a disabled room as I cannot climb into the bath for a shower, the room was great as was the bathroom, furniture a bit the worse for wear but ok. In the morning we went down... More
