We only live an hour away and were looking for a reasonable base from which to explore and were not disappointed. Firstly, the price during half term was only £220 total, including cooked... More

This is a lovely hotel with good facilities for disabled people. We were lucky enough to have great weather which showed off the beautiful surroundings of the golf course and bowling green. The disabled room was lovely and big with a walk in shower and handles around the toilet and a seat in the shower. The bed was huge and... More

We stayed here for one night last Saturday whilst visiting Wales for the first time. Very nice hotel, very clean and well presented with ample parking but let down by the fact that the 'double' bed we booked was two singles pushed together with the obvious ridge down the middle and some flat pillows. (In fairness there were probably more... More

Thank you for leaving a review of your stay with us. I apologise that we failed to meet your expectations on this occasion. We use a “zip and link” system for many of our beds which we find works well, as it does in many hotels. This would mean that both the beds and mattresses would have been joined together... More

Thank you for leaving us a review of your golf break. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the course. The green staff have worked hard this year to ensure that the course drains as well as possible. This has meant that the course has remained open throughout the winter. It is also good to hear that you found... More
