We couldn't afford to stay at the hotel where my friend's daughter was getting married it was about £145 a night and a bit beyond us. Went one step down and paid £75 a night for a room at the Duke which was very close by. It was fantastic. We had two days in luxury with a great big cast... More

We were informed that there was no cctv on there but that the railway and the nursing home next to it had cctv. We... More

Room was very comfortable BUT the thermostat would not go below 24 degrees despite following instructions to lower the temperature. All windows appeared sealed until we found a tiny sticker on the second night that said THIS WINDOW OPENS. So the first night was uncomfortable. Also the... More

We were greeted by a friendly and efficient receptionist. Our room was great value and we were very comfortable during our 2 night stay. As with a lot of the European accommodation we encountered, the bedding was just a doona and no top sheet, so we found oursevles kicking off the doona during the night then pulling it back up...

We came here in February for one night. The hotel is nice, atmosphere in the bar area was good, 45 minute drive to the lakes... there is an Italian takeaway around the corner, their food is amazing! freshly cooked pizza, spaghetti bolognese, etc. All in all, lovely trip & hotel!

Spent a great few days during the weekend in this brilliant hotel. We had a lovely superior room with roll top bath. Bed was very comfy and even though we were on the ground floor we couldn't hear any noise from people outside or traffic. We ate in the restaurant two nights in a row and the food was very... More
