Enjoyed our stay here for 2 nights. It met our needs and we would return. Do not purchase the dinner deal - you can pay less on the night! You do not get 3 courses - you get £25 pounds to spend on your dinner!

Overpriced for what it is. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was great but the whole place was like being at a caravan site with cheesy entertainment. It is certainly not the romantic trip I was looking for. Would be great for families but not couples. I was disappointed in the lack of information available about the facilities.... More

Could not find fault at this price, tremendous value. Staff were all well trained, cheery and helpful even the ones that were not dealing with me, felt a bit at home. Rooms were all clean and well prepared. The property was quiet, calm and well looked after. A very positive experience. Many thanks

Very comfortable stay with excellent entertainment from Stewart Anderson in the evening. Wines and drinks very expensive and walk to Conference Centre for breakfast unusual but probably a temporary requirement

OK. Like others on here, when I arrived I was shocked by the outside of the hotel. 1 hotel is bran new and looks like the photos. The other 2 are very old and look like social housing. As luck would have it we were in the not so nice hotel. We were expecting the worst! We arrived to work... More
