Stayed with family for one night was comfortable and quiet. The room was a good size to fit a zbed and cot considering it was a standard room and other hotels with standard and exec rooms you can't swing a cat.

Not a bad place to stay for a night or two, however as someone who visits hotels at least 30+ times per year for business and pleasure i wouldn't rate the property much above average. The staff are friendly which is always great after a busy day and a must in today's customer focussed leisure sector. Internally the hotel looks... More

We were visiting family and stayed one night. Good clean room, only personal downside was the plug in air fresheners. The room overlooked the outdoor swimming pool with some seating in a grassed area, very pleasant first thing in the morning. Friendly bar and good dinner from a reasonable fixed price menu. Good breakfast with eggs freshly cooked to order... More

I stayed here for just the one night but enjoyed my stay. The shower was great and very clean. The bed was also comfortable and tea and coffee plentiful. The only thing I would say is we did not eat there,we were offered breakfast but at £12 thought it quite expensive. It was a walk away from the town which... More
