Waitress and service was good but the food was major let down. Prawn cocktail did not smell fresh, prawns were the smallest I've ever seen and presentation a joke. Then came the steak....asked for medium but got fully cooked through. Politely returned and it was replaced promptly with a rare one! Garnish was also very poor. It says a lot... More

We were warmly welcomed by Alan who checked us in and showed us to our lovely room. The bar was warm and cosy and... More

As with others - Groupon Deal was our "hook", making it EXCELLENT VALUE. Very helpful staff & comfortable, clean, adequate room. Really enjoyed evening meals in pleasant ground floor restaurant. Bar was quite well used on the Sunday afternoon but MT on the evening. The discount given for eating "in-house" was a marvellous extra, covering both wine & food. The... More

The guests lounge had some good reading material, and a large TV if required. Choice of breakfasts was excellent and the food was perfect. And it was served by such... More

On arrival we were shown to room 29 on the top floor which had a nice view out to the side overlooking the east of the town. The room was warm and comfortable and had a bathroom and a separate...
