Never a complaint with sunday lunch. Very tasty food. Home made. Never busy though when we have dined. Never stayed here but know friends that have and they never have a bad word. Also went to a wedding reception here that was lovely

When I read the reviews the most recent were quite encouraging, but since we've been I see there have been some very negative ones. At the time I was booking I just wanted to get on with it and find somewhere to stay. We were only going for two nights over Easter and so I just went for something quickly... More

Nothing to eat because is Sunday and holy day, should'nt all hotels have 24 hours staff? Not even a sandwich, man in front desk did not care at all another guest and I were going to spend the night starving, he said everything in town was closed, it was night, in the room an old bag of chips they are...

Just stayed for one night. Room very spacious and comfortable. Tv reception was poor at first but soon settled. Bed and pillows very comfortable. No road noise even though we were at the front of the hotel.Didn't have breakfast as it appeared a tad expensive , went into town and everywhere that sold breakfast was just as dear!

Excellent position in town, limited parking on site, on street parking has daytime restrictions, public car park within walking distance. Building in need of investment, facade ok but interior is generally very dark, lots of 'brown' furniture. Room was clean, reasonably well equipped and bed was comfortable, just the general dowdyness and lack of light did not make for somewhere... More

Needed a twin room for one night. Was put off by reviews but they appear to have a captive audience if you need a twin room in town so went ahead and booked. The hotel badly needs investment but in meantime its cheapish and cheerful and the staffs were all frendly.

I have lived in this hotel for long enough(10 months) to be able to form an opinion about it. The service is great, Rami, Zaneta, the boys and girls at service are just outstanding. Rooms do vary but they all provide what is expected from a modern hotel. Amenities are full of character and the bar complements the place nicely!... More

Stayed one night prior to attending a wedding locally. On arrival we were allocated one of the suites, which was very nice. Had to return to reception as the power was not working in the room, but this was fixed quickly as I unloaded luggage from the car. Room was warm, clean and comfortable, shower was hot and powerful.
