The room was of a good size, with a double bed,the en-suite shower room was recently refurbished. The room could do with a light by the dressing table mirror, and coat hooks on the wall for outdoor... More

As with most hotels, in parts it was a little tired but all this was compensated by the excellent service provided, excellent meals, compliments to your kitchen staff.Excellent entertainment every night even though it was Christmas.

Looking at earlier reviews, it seems that impressions of this hotel depend very much on visitor expectations. We went for their Christmas Break, and the great majority of the visitors were in what must be regarded as the "elderly" age group including ,apparently, many previous visitors. Without any disrespect to them I would say that perhaps their expectations of what... More

The room was average,requires some maintenance. Bathroom facilities poor,no soap provided. The food was good but very small portions. The wife requires a Gluten free diet,I must point out that this was very good. You get what you pay for,as we only paid a small amount we were satisfied.

Entertainment was good on three of the four nights. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Big downfall with this hotel as others have said is the number of steps... More

Stayed at this hotel on a shearings 5 day break. All the staff work really hard to make your stay comfortable a special mention has to go to Garry and all the staff on the bar and Pedro the General Manager and his team for sorting out some issues I had with my room. Hoping to return again next year.
