“wouldn't go back.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

we came here just for one night and when we arrived it was like they weren't expecting us and left the young guy from the restaurant downstairs to sort it out. They were painting all the rooms when we arrived so the place wasnt the tidiest but thats understandable. room was quite dated and the bed was squeaky. restaurant was tasty and breakfast average. nothing to rave about here.

“Busy but not great quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

When we got there around 7pm, there was a long queue for the take away section. As we wanted a take away, we had to wait. They did not have enough chips prepared, although they did take advance orders to help save time, such as Special Fish. The staff were friendly and apologized for the delay. However, a Fish and a hip place not having enough chips is rather disappointing.

Everything is cooked as you order - very extensive menu - excellent staff - you can also sit in as well as carry out. Gluten free options available.
