We stopped off for lunch in this hotel and would have to recommend to any other group looking for lunch stop or even somewhere to stay. Tina with Manager was excellent to deal with. The service was brilliant and lunch was fab. Looking forward to our return visit in 2015.

Where it lets itself down is the rooms itself, let me correct myself, if you are above... More

Far too small for family with two kids would do for 2 people sharing not four. Barely fit one double and one single - hardly any space to walk (can you... More

I was informed there was a wedding going on but it should finish early enough. The noise did get a bit unbearable when I was trying to get to sleep but they finished up about midnight.... More
