We stayed here for 3 nights and the room was very comfortable and clean. The view from the bedroom was unbelievable. There was a good choice for breakfast including full English and kippers.We had our evening meal in the restaurant the food was excellent and plenty of choice, large portions and you couldn't fault the service. Full marks all round... More

Excellent lunch. Carvery or from the menu. I had cod today and my friend had the small carvers. Excellent service no food of the highest standard. Could have had a better outlook as the told for two was without a view but not a big problem.

When I rang to book the accommodation George was really friendly and helpful and booked us in the restaurant for dinner too. We were not disappointed... More

My chicken curry... More
