We attended a Wedding reception only last week and found the hotel to be very clean and in very good condition. The rooms were massive, staff were very very helpful and the function room was perfect for the reception. The hotel bar is a great place to relax and the breakfast was more than we'd hoped for. Would definitely recommend!

Stayed here for New Year's Eve and found the hotel to be nice, modern and clean. There was a nice amount of activity giving the hotel a bit of buzz. The rooms were fine and the bar had a good selection of food on offer. The breakfast was pretty poor to be honest. A limited self service "fry" and a... More
