Have stayed here before and once again a very comfortable 2 night stay. Comfortable bed and very helpful staff. This time there was a bonus as the hotel had a 2 for one meal offer on bar meals. Rooms are currently being upgraded.

Booked an overnight stay because the Hotel advertised it was pet friendly but dogs not even allowed in the bar so went elsewhere for a snack and drink. The room we had was very dated. Clean linen and towels let down by the vintage bed, badly sealed bath and broken shower. You could even see daylight through the ill fitted... More

Working at auckland castle, we needed a hotel close by. The park head was what I booked for my colleague and I. We pulled up and almost cancelled straight away. I may be being unfair, but it looks tired, run down and a bit grubby. We went to reception and we were given a very warm welcome and were quickly... More

While working in the area last September I looked for a comfortable friendly hotel to use on a weekly basis. The job finished the beginning of April, I was given the same room every week, it was like a home from home. If I ever returned to the area this would be my first choice for accommodation

Venue fabulous, what a find. Service fabulous, staff so warm and friendly. Food just gorgeous from wedding reception through to evening buffet. Best beef I've tasted in a long while. Thank you to Avril for ensuring everything ran smoothly, all in all a perfect day.
