Faulty Towers is too good for this establishment. There is no Polly. Manuel was there running with a screwdriver, hammer and door hardware. Basil I did not see but am certain he lurked. (The Major was evident in abundance) The rooms I cannot describe. We did not get that far. Despite a booking confirmed with visa the reception was quick... More

Stayed here last night. Awful hotel. Room was dirty, hairs caught all around the bath handle. Fire alarm went off twice in the morning, apparently they're very sensitive, shame as would probably be better if the place burnt down and they started again. Spoke to manager who said ' we don't advertise ourselves as anything better' . The place was... More

The leisure facilities were the deciding factor for our two night stay. We couldn't believe the price for a hotel offering these kind of facilities and we weren't disappointed. Even although the jacuzzi wasn't on when we were there we were very pleased with the small swimming pool and sauna. Our rooms were clean, warm and made up every day... More

This hotel is situated in a beautiful spot. Granted it is a bit dated inside but my room was clean and comfortable with lovely soft clean towels every day.Staff are very helpful and extremely friendly. Breakfast is plentiful and all cooked breakfasts arrive at your table piping hot and the service is excellent.would definately stay there again

The staff at this hotel are so lovely. We didn't know what to expect as this was a last minute internet booking at a very reasonable price. The food was great, extremely fast service and a good choice each day. We stayed in a lodge room, which was really clean, our room was tidied each day and although basic was... More

This hotel is need of total refurbishment. Party of 10 with our ages ranging from 14-78 years old, you would usually expect a variety of comments. Sadly, not with this 1, as we all agreed it was poor (and that's being kind)! Whilst the staff are very pleasant and helpful, it is the hotel itself that needs a complete makeover.... More

Stayed here last week, the rooms were clean and tidy as well as comfortable and warm. The staff were very friendly and make the stay a pleasant one, especially Thomas the waiter and his wife the chef. We grabbed an excellent offer from easy breaks, allowing dinner, bed and breakfast along with a bottle of wine, so to be honest... More
