The room we had was an upgrade very spacious, clean and well maintained. Staff were very friendly on arrival and in fact throughout our stay. We booked a meal in the... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in February 2014. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and spacious with good room features. The hotel has great leisure facilities which we used, although it was rather awkward with work people

Hotel was lovely, big rooms, big bed and good quality. Lacking guest information in the rooms such as breakfast times, menus for restaurant etc also had no main light in our room which was strange - had to use table lamps which were quite dim. For the time of year I was surprised that I didn't see any clearing of... More

Stayed for one night and had a great time. Room was very clean, had all the facilities you would expect and was comfy. We used the pool/sauna/steam room and again no complaints. We ate in the restaurant and the food was very good. Service was a little slow but the standard of food certainly made up for this. My one... More

We have just spent 2 nights at the hotel with our 8 year old. We all had a great time. Our family room was clean and spacious. We found the staff friendly and efficient. My son went into the activity centre and he had a great time, so much so he asked us to book extra sessions for him! The... More
