Like the previous reviewer we were at the hotel for our second time on the dancing weekend, reception and bar area are lovely with plenty of comfy seating and a TV for our men to watch the footie while we danced the nights away in the lovely large ballroom. All the staff were very friendly, polite and helpful and the food was very good with plenty of variety and choice. Our bedroom was better this time than last as we paid a little extra for an upgrade, it was very spacious and nice and clean but the decor could do with updating, wallpaper ripped in places and paintwork needs painting. The bed was comfortable and we both slept well, only small problems were the toilet seat was broken where it fixes to the toilet and so was a bit wobbly and the shower although fantastically powerful was a bit unsafe as my husband caught the temp dial by accident and it went right round to max which was boiling hot, if it had been a child or an old person it could have been quite nasty, I did report this to reception so they could take a look. Overall very happy with the stay and would go back again.
