There were 40 members in our party, a mixture of mostly walkers plus non walkers. We found the staff friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble and they catered for our every need. The rooms were excellent and good value. We had breakfast and evening meal for four days and were very pleased with all the food provided. Packed... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel as I was a guest at a friends wedding. The room had everything I needed clean, comfortable, warm and good value for money. The two things I was most impressed with were the temperature and power of the shower and the fact that in the wardrobe was an ironing board. This meant that I... More

Very surprised to read previous reviews with regards to rude staff, as a frequent visitor to the hotel the one thing that stands out is how polite & welcoming the staff are.

I have visited this venue on three occasions - twice for conferences and once for a social event. During all off my visits I have found the staff to be rude, miserable and incredibly discourteous. The girls on the reception desk are particularly abrupt and unwelcoming. During the conferences, we were given cold tea & coffee and whilst the room... More

Second year for organised Company Christmas Party. Although very good didn't find it on par with previous year. Very off putting that the dessert was served on what can only be described as a bathroom/kitchen tile, that emitted a fusty smell. This was pointed out to management who said they would look in to the matter.

Read some previous comments and we were pleasantly surprised. Stayed here last year and rated it as 4 and I must say it was even better this time.
