Spent a weekend here mid March 2014. Room was grotty to say the least, stains on carpet, stains on ceiling and badly in need of a make over. View from room was a concrete wall which didn't do the room any favours either. Food was average. The kids club was a bonus but that was purely down to the staff... More

Booked a 3 day Golden Years break - very reasonable price and good value for money. All the staff were excellent - friendly, efficient and helpful without being intrusive. Rooms were light and airy and spotlessly clean. Food was very good with good choice of menu. Will certainly go back and can recommend it to anyone.

Hotel is really lovely, enjoyed our stay. Staff were lovely, hotel itself is lovely, breakfast was good and had a great night sleep. The only thing I can say anything bad about was the evening meal we had. Just wasnt our kind of food. Would definitely go back but eat in the bar rather than yhe upstairs restaurant.
