I stayed here recently with my family and found the hotel to be very child friendly. They have excellent facilities for kids including cinema, games room, bikes, area to play football, pool, kids club etc. It was also an excellent base to visit other attractions nearby. Kids loved the cookies and milk delivered to our room at night also. The... More

We booked in here for a special family occasion after a difficult year. I had specifically requested, when booking, not to be located anywhere near wedding parties in the hotel. I had also asked to be put in a quiet room as I am a very light sleeper. Ended up we were put IN BETWEEN what appeared to be the... More

On the day of arrival we were... More

We came down for our wedding anniversary in February. The staff were very friendly on check in. There seemed to be a lot of families about and they were doing an offer for kids that gave them use of the cinema room and then cookies and milk before bed! We got to our room which was a deluxe room and... More

The bedrooms are excellent no matter which level of accommodation you have paid for. However the gym facilities and pool were both poor. The gym was like a home work out area definitely not what I expected in this standard of hotel. The restaurants were excellent so was the service in the bar. The ladies at reception do a wonderful...

Lovely entrance lobby and reception rooms. However, the beautiful drawing rooms are set up for wedding champagne reception/canapés and not particularly for hotel guests. We were at a wedding here a few years ago ( before hotel in receivership ) and it is a beautiful venue for reception. Room was upgraded to executive room. Comfortable bed with lovely pillows. We...
