I got married on New Year's Day 2015. My reception was held here and I couldn't have dreamt of better. Some staff had been awake all night making sure our venue room was all ready following a party the evening before. Staff were wonderful on our arrival and couldn't help us or our guests enough. Food was fabulous for wedding... More

Soup Turkey dinner and there was a choice of Christmas pudding and choc fudge cake. I opted for the pudding and although am not usually a pudding lover it was absolutely gorgeous! Only thing that spoilt the meal... More

the first impression of this hotel is not good, through an industrial estate and next to a tatty boatyard but when you go in the staff are friendly and it seems OK. The bar downstairs is fine, clean and well decorated and the service was good. The rooms are a different story, shabby without the chic. The carpet needed a... More

Stopped for a carvery. The vegetables, potatoes, meat, gravy and Yorkshire pudding were all almost cold.. IT must have been put out hours before because it was also dried up. A thick skin had formed on the gravy. The staff were pleasant until we complained. One of the female staff became very rude. She said she could not do anything... More
