We stayed here a last week and it was lovely. Our room was lovely. There is nothing bad I could say about our stay. We would stay here again in the future. Great spot and right beside the town. The staff are very helpful and have a lovely bar that serves food all day.

I have used this hotel on many occasions for training courses and meetings. Everything is as planned when you arrived, room layout, equipment required and catering timings as planned. Staff are excellent I all areas of the hotel, from initial discussions to reception staff, bar staff and excellent resturant staff.

Travelled over from Wales Friday, for a funeral on Saturday. Waited over an hour for a meal and then it was wrong. The most anoying thing was the amount of noise in the corridor Saturday evening. People talking/shouting all night long. Not the best nights sleep I've ever had. The staff are very friendly but overall not a great experience.... More
