Stopped here as it was advertised as spa hotel and booked traetments before arriving. Once we get there we are told there is a healthclub on the otherside of town which we can walk to which will only take 20 minutes. Inside of hotel is unfinished with unplastered walls. It is badly maintained and smelly in the public areas. Food... More

Gorgeous hotel with lovely rooms, grounds and food. Only downside is not many signs from the road and corridors could do with a paint however there were signs suggesting this was being done. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

....as always. This place never disappoints which is why we had our wedding here. The food is always cooked to perfection and the staff are just lovely and always try their hardest to ensure that you have a great time. This place is certainly somewhere that we love returning to time and time again. Cannot wait for our next visit.

I stayed here for a few nights in June whilst working in the area. I stayed in room 9 which is located on the ground floor with the extensive gravel car park right outside the window - this proved to be quite noise sometimes. The room was nicely decorated but needed a bit freshened up. Restaurant was nice - food... More

On 26th July 2014 my husband and I got married at the Hotel, the venue and staff exceeded all of our expectations. From the minute we first enquired about availability the... More

Not the easiest to find if you're following a sat nav as it is a cul de sac location - hence the 'hidden', in fact it's on quite a busy roundabout but you wouldnt know. We stayed the night before moving into our new house and rarely have we been met by such accommodating staff. We asked for early breakfast... More
