Using an offer promoted by the hotel. We stayed as a group on a Friday evening. Pleasant enough food. Made me laugh when we were told we had to pay for a bread roll ! The staff Holly, Angela and Natasha were all very professional, friendly and chatty. Rooms were acceptable with modern decor.

I have often eaten at this hotel,they gave recently been taken over. The quality of food has improved but service is always so slow, they just never gave enough staff on, this really needs to be addresses especially as the cater for large parties, they really should have got this correct by now.

We went here for a New Years break over 3 nights, food was great, staff helpful and room was spacious. Although our room was cold at first, it hadn't been used the night before, the staff offered a change or a heater, we took the heater as our room was so nice.

I appreciate that the hotel is undergoing a refurbishment at this time. On the day we were shown to our tables, there were 17 of us, and the fact that it was a carvery was fine but queuing for the food was in my opinion not really thought out with the numbers of guests at the venue. Carvery meats were...

Stayed one night while attending a business related meeting. A pleasant enough hotel that appears to be under new ownership.
