6 of us went here on a Sunday night for the steak special. You get 2 steaks and a bottle of house wine, side were extra. Food was fantastic, well presented. The staff were outstanding. Nothing was a trouble, I would defiantly go back and recommend. We only went for a meal so I can not comment on the hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for my sister's wedding and we had a fantastic day, the venue really is great and the hotel seemed to ensure everything went to plan for her and her new husband on the day. The grounds are lovely, and there's plenty of space around the hotel for all the guests. Every staff member I... More

We stayed over night in one of the Premier rooms. The room was really amazing, the view, the bathroom and facilities were wondeful - but - to get to it, we had to walk past a fire exit door, that was permanently open, with view on open bin containers, and cigarette butts in fornt of the door. We were guests... More
