Stayed for 2 nights to attend a wedding. Had no issues throughout, no complaints with the room or the service. All staff I dealt with there were helpful and attentive. Activities for the children and the free play area next door were great to have. Pool is small but serves its purpose. food was enjoyable also.

We stayed here for 2 nights B&B. Check in was fast and earlier than expected as our room was early. The reception staff were the friendliest I have seen in a hotel. Our room was spacious and spotlessly clean but so, so hot. It was stifling! It wasn't particularly warm outside but the room was so warm we all slept... More

Every thing was nice.rooms could do with air conditioning and check in could be earlier. I personally wouldn't go back it's a bit out of the way from the town and the reception seemed swapped. The dome is handy beside if you have kids and a deep wallet.

Then we started to notice things like there were no towels in our bathroom. The seat in the lounge area of the room was shabby, the remote control had no back to keep... More
