Great value for 5 people over two nights, the rooms were good nice and bright. Only thing was the traffic noise was a bit loud at times. Shower was lovely and the food was very good. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Stayed from Friday to Monday and really enjoyed the stay. Staff couldn't do enough for you. Will definitely return. You are near everywhere but just far enough away. Food in the bar is gorgeous. Bedroom was clean and inviting.

We stopped here to get a meal after along drive. A plentyful plate with cooked beef melt in the mouth, good meal and pleasant service. It was very quiet in the dining area and we were served promptly with a good choice on the menu.
