This place is a great place to stop off for lunch, they do a great sandwich and soup offer and the chips are really nice homemade ones. They also make lovely toasties and have a great selection of cakes. However the drinks can be quite expensive.

Slightly fawlty towers. Strange room layouts round an atrium. Also decor slightly dated but still perfectly acceptable. Excellent rooms, good gym facilities. Above all extremely pleasant staff and superb food. The evening meal deal at £25 for 3 courses and wine was first class and the breakfast choice was excellent. I had smoked haddock and poached eggs. Only fault is... More
