It is situated in the town but there was no noise problem at all. We were on the first floor. The staff... More

Did not stay in hotel but had a very enjoyable meal. I was there as apart of a club dinner and the food was delicious. Our meal was served on time and the silver service waitress were very nice and helpful. They kept coming round again to give us more food and to see if we needed anything. My husband... More

Breakfast was very good but would be nice to have potato and soda bread for visitors to try. The only downside, albeit a small one, was having to pay £1 everytime you wanted to get... More

Recently organised an evening function here for the wedding anniversary of my parents. From the initial contact to settling the bill, we received excellent service. The events manager couldn't have been anymore helpful. The evening went off so well. The room was very nice and we were able to use the lounge area outside. It was just perfect for the... More

When we arrived on the morning of the wedding enquired about somewhere to leave our bags as we were about 3 hours early. We were told by the lovely staff that we could have early check in... More

I stayed here and was really impressed with the service. The hotel staff could not do enough for me. When I got up late, they had the kitchen make me up a breakfast and they gave me a late check-out when I requested same. The room was clean and tidy and served its purpose. The bar staff were lovely and... More
