Staff extremely helpful and very friendly. Food choices are great. If u decide to book over December i suggest u dont opt for the Christmas lunch as it really gets too hectic with day visitors who booked for lunch.

The staff were friendly and welcoming, however the rooms had broken basins, the paint on the walls was wearing off and the phone in our room was not working. The quality of the food was below average.
