The restaurant was really efficient despite being full.Food was imaginative and well cooked.Breakfast was an absolute treat,fresh fruit in... More

My review is based on our experience of a tribute night so not on the hotel itself. We had booked for four people in July to go the Frankie Valli tribute night on the 17th September, when we arrived we were told they had no record of our booking so no seats for us, we were asked to stand in...

Check-in okay, if a little slow. We were given room 11 which was a disabled access room with a large bathroom. Not many sockets for charging phones etc, There was an extension cable for the TV which also gave an extra socket. Comfortable bed with extra pillows if needed. Two large windows but they only open very slightly and the... More
