Have stayed here a few times now and really like the atmosphere in the bar and restaurant. Myself and my girlfriend can only say how great the food was - chicken Caesar salad and a mx grill. Love the nice big rooms and very clean.

Having attended a Murder Mystery previously at the Hotel, I asked the owner if he could arrange a private dinner for my colleagues and me.

The food was amazing, can not recommend the steak highly enough. Cooked to perfection and a lovely cut of meat. Staff friendly and helpful. The owner gave us a tour of the hotel and the rooms look amazing.

Recently been down there with a friend for two steaks at a cracking deal, I would have been happy paying double the price due to the steaks being amazing, well cooked rich in flavor and it was complemented well by the sides, anyone who doesn't see this as great value for money is simply a lunatic :)
