What a pleasant surprise this plaxe is. A definite must visit for dinner if your visiting the area or even for a quick pitstop along the way. Ours was an unplanned visit for dinner. The staff were welcoming friendly and attentive and best of all the food was delicious and generous portions. We will DEFINITELY be back.

The staff were so friendly and attentive. The only problem - I couldn't stay longer ! Co-incidently another delegate at the meeting also stayed there and she too was well impressed. What more can I say ?

Decor a bit tired, BUT spotlessly clean with the most comfortable king size bed at the back of the hotel so very quiet. Staff did show us one of the rooms that has just been completely... More
