I attended a friends wedding a couple of months ago and everything about the day was amazing, they certainly picked the most beautiful venue. Everything about the hotel and function room was just perfect and the staff were amazing too, so helpful, polite and always smiling.

Nice building, clean rooms, decent breakfast but the highlight was the very friendly and accommodating staff. We had a small issue with the electrics in our room but this was dealt with quickly, in a friendly and competent manner. On the downside the soundproofing between the rooms isn't the greatest - at one point my wife and I were convinced... More

As a frequent visitor to this hotel, I can only commend the staff on their continued excellent customer service. The staff are the reason I continue to use the hotel, as it is quite shabby in places. Some of the rooms are quite noisy too, so ask for a high floor on the opposite side to the rear car park,... More

We stayed here for one night for a wedding. The room was very comfortable and had a very high standard of cleanliness. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the food is fantastic! The gardens are great for sitting outside with a drink on a sunny day.
