The service from the barman was prompt and he was very friendly. Disappointed when I had ordered a salmon sandwich, only to be told the didn't have any. We were the only people in the resteraunt. The menu wasn't very extensive so little choice. The television was blaring out with football. Not... read more

I stayed here whilst undertaking a business trip. My first impressions of the exterior were of The Overlook hotel from the Stephen King novel The Shining. Ok. So on entering it immediately became apparent that this hotel was quiet. Weirdly quiet. In fact I was waiting to hear Moonlight, The Stars and You being played on a gramaphone somewhere. In... More

I booked our party of six for the Valentines Dinner which co-incided with my husbands 'special' birthday. On arrival I was disappointed to see the function room was bare, cold and no sign of any Valentine decorations or table decorations. There was no provision for coats so we had to eat with them draped over the back of our chairs.... More

Restaurant food is very good, but it stops there. The place doesn't look like the pictures on the website. the Reception desk looks as if it was pulled out of a skip and the rooms although clean are very tired and out dated. The shower is dangerous, I had to keep getting out of the shower as the water suddenly... More

This hotel would make an ideal old peoples home on the basis that most of the guests would probably be deaf and therefore not be bothered about the M25 motorway which is less than 200 yards away. The hotel itself is in desperate need of an upgrade.
