I stayed here with my family. 3 young toddlers and 4 adults. It was a lovely spacious room, very clean and contained all of the bits we would need. The staff were more than helpful and the hotel location is great. a bit tricky if there is no parking spaces at the hotel. Even when i came in late evening... More

None of the rooms have air con, for a four star hotel it does not have four star facilities. The staff are nice but when you are sitting in a roasting hot room trying to do your work it is not pleasant!!

Very friendly and efficient welcome. Room was clean, however I cannot see why there was a necessity for a separate toilet and bathroom, especially as the toilet had no handbasin. Bed squeaked a bit but not a big problem. I attended a function at the hotel which was superb! Knowing there were going to be an extra 90 people it... More

Hotel was very comfortable and breakfast was good. Restaurant staff very friendly. Downsides were lift service (not appropriate to size of hotel) and car parking. Car park is far too small for number of rooms and expensive given room rates.
