We booked this hotel last minute as a stop over before an early morning flight we arrived in the afternoon because my husband wanted to watch the football. On arrival car park was really full but we learned that this is an airport parking facility which we would use next time but we still managed to find a space. The... More

On arrival, we opened into a scenic drive down into the car park which seemed lovely at first. On walking through the front doors I commented on a "grand" appearance although it soon became apparent that did not continue throughout the venue. I can only compare the experience to falling through a tardis back into the 1980s. The hotels beyond... More

My partner and i recently stayed at this hotel before a flight early the next morning, and we did not get any sleep. It is obvious that wedding guests of this hotel are held in higher regard to those who are staying the night. I was kept awake all night with kids and adults running riot in the hotel. Bad... More

This hotel might have been a 4 star hotel 10-15 years ago. It seems to be a bit worn out to be nice. :-) The rooms have seen better days. It was not very easy to get a smile from the staff members and the restaurant was very dark. The breakfast was average.

I haven't stayed here so cannot comment on the rooms, I was here on a training day and going of that I would not want to stay. The gardens would be lovely if you could see them for weeds and rubbish!

I was sorry to read that you did not enjoy your recent visit to the hotel. We have a maintenance team that look after the grounds and smoking area. These areas are checked and cleaned throughout the day, I do not understand how the bins and ashtrays were over flowing as this is simply not the case. The hotel bedrooms,... More

I don't know where to start. The drive up to the hotel is pretty. Then it all goes downhill. The hotel has a very strange smell, damp and a bit musty. The decor on the way to our room was hideous, the carpets were threadbare and hideous. The room was an adventure in itself. The bizarre naked woman sketch on... More
