I stopped for 2 nights for a wedding in the area. When we booked (over 2 days) 1 party was told no deposit, one party told £20 and another 50% - didn't seem to know what they were talking about. Rang earlier in the week to confirm the booking and prices. When we checked in late Friday night, the room... More

Dear Lucy, Thank you for your review we do take your comments seriously as they enable us to identify and correct wherever necessary. The hotel is now privately owned and some procedures have changed so it would have depended on when and how the booking was made as to whether deposits were asked for , I'm sorry if this caused...

Over the next 16 months we were... More

Me & my mum enjoyed a delicious, filling afternoon tea then a nice chill out & relax in the lovely pool & steam room-well worth going!! Very pleasant staff too. Would definitely go again especially as the price is too good to miss & so close to home.

We had a large lounge area with a sofa and chair as well as a dining table, double bedroom and large bathroom. We also had a balcony. The hotel staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble.

That said it was very dated and in need of refurbishment although I understand that the hotel is currently being upgraded. The staff were all really welcoming and couldn't... More
