My family & I had the most fantastic meal in the newly refurbished bar. All I can say is wow! The service was unbelievable, the waiters were very attentive. Our order was taken very promptly but you wouldn't want to be in a hurry for your food, then again good food shouldn't be rushed. Also it is a bit on... More

Arrived on a Friday afternoon for a 3-night family break. I had booked a family room but was upgraded to adjoining rooms when we arrived - fantastic! Can't imagine I will ever be persuaded back to a family room again. Both rooms were spacious with double bed and 2 singles each. These rooms were in the part of the hotel... More

Arrived here Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. We were checked in by a lovely friendly girl quickly and efficiently. Our rooms were nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. We had dinner in the restaurant that evening and while the food was lovely the service was not good by any standards. We had the same experience in the bar the next night.... More

On approaching this hotel I was concerned at the shabby exterior and expected a poor to average experience for what was a very cheap rate. How wrong I was! Yes the decor needs attention but the service made all the difference. Every staff member we encountered during our two night stay was so friendly and helpful. For example our teenage... More

I booked this hotel for 2 nights as the pictures on the website made it look beautiful, don't be drawn in like I was by what you see on the website. We checked in and very swiftly checked back out!! This hotel in my opinion needs to be closed for a while until the renovations are completed. We walked on... More
