Visited here, as with a previous writer, on a Turkey and Tinsel weekend. Echoing the comments about the trip and Leyton the coach driver, I also the have to agree that everything was as you could wish for (and more) from a two star hotel. Good, well cooked food, clean, warm rooms, well appointed public areas and reasonable bar prices.... More

We stayed here on a coach holiday courtesy of 'Leisuretime', bit of a hiccup on way due to breakdown but still arrived on time due to good driving by Leyton, our driver. Made very welcome. Room was warm, spacious and well appointed with plenty of hot water. Minal, our waitress is one of the hardest working girls we've meet serving... More

I came here with my partner as part of a large group 10th -12th October. The check in was Olympic speed and our room was basic but clean. (TV didn't work but I didn't care). The English Breakfast was nicely cooked and the dinner in the evenings was hot and tasty, but don't expect Michelin star food! The bar prices... More

My review is based on the hotel's two star rating. We had a large very clean bedroom with a new shower.All spotless. I asked about and our fellow travellers were similarly happy. There is a very large entertainment room/lounge and a separate restaurant. Both very well appointed far beyond what you might expect for a two star. Again both very... More

We stayed here as part of a Leisure weekend in October. We were impressed by the food, both the quality and choice. The hotel, although a little dated, was spotlessly clean and very warm. The staff are very hardworking. Good evening entertainment . Would recommend a stay.
