Housekeeping was exceptional. Great bar staff. Food OK but veg not up to much. Our driver David was great too. Wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend.... More

Stayed 2nd - 9th July with Shearings. Booked a standard room which was spacious and quiet with a decent sized bathroom. Public areas need an update but this didn't detract from the holiday. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful, best we've come across in many Shearing's hotels. Food acceptable but the veg leave something to be desired! Included excursions were excellent... More

Stayed from 2nd to 9th July. Hotel is rather dated. Disappointed with room 40 felt like servants quarters. Tiny shower and loo for "bathroom"; hand basin in bedroom; Paintwork flaking; Shower had mouldy grout; 2 dining chairs for seats - very odd. Service in dining room very chaotic at times. Food of acceptable standard. Staff friendly. Nice patio area but... More
