We visited this hotel on a 5 night break with National Holidays in May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It is a big hotel and as it is a wedding venue, its grounds were lovely. There were up to 300 people eating on an evening and bearing this in mind, the food wasn't bad at all and as the... More

Staff seemed to wait until patrons were seated before table was cleaned. Would have been much better if tables were cleared and set up before being seated. Lunch was really... More
