Very good accommodation and food here. It gets very busy in restaurant. We have stayed there a few times and rooms are always clean, staff are really nice, breakfast is good. It does sometimes get unbearably hot in the bar area, but usually the staff will open up a door or turn the heat down.

Me and my fiancé stayed here for one night with a groupon deal. The room itself was okay but have to say the bed is the most comfortable bed we've ever had in a hotel before. The groupon deal included sparkling wine but this wasn't in our room on arrival as stated on the voucher but we were given it... More

Visited earlier today for a small family celebration. Myself and my partner, plus my father and the birthday girl, my mum. We had attentive service from a fantastically polite, well presented, knowledgeable and (most importantly) quick waiter. I did not get his name unfortunately, but he was outstanding. If the management are reading, check who was the guy who returned... More

I turned up at 4.50pm and noticed that food started from 5pm. By the time I got my drink, sat and looked over the menu then went to the bar to order, it was 5pm. I ordered Fish n Chips which I believe was in the region of £9 on the menu. Imagine my surprise then when the barperson said.."That... More

Where to start... I went here with my partner for a sunday carvery/dinner. I eat meat, but my partner is vegetarian. Typically when you go to a restaurant on a Sunday, they'll have a vegetarian option too. Not here. The vegetarian options consisted of a goat's cheese tarte with basic tomato sauce, and a few other things that were unrelated... More

Attended a wedding party with family. The venue was amazing, really set out nice and tables were decorated lovey. We all had a great night, the only thing that let the place down was the buffet was not up to standard.
