Booked this hotel for a last minute family break over half term. We were not disappointed. The family room was spotless, comfortable and big enough for myself, hubby & son. All the staff without exception were helpful, friendly and very attentive. We had a meal there one of the evenings and the food was well presented and tasted great. Breakfast...

Rooms were clean and comfortable. My partner had a problem twice with her room but Reception quickly dealt with the problems. Dinner was basic and lacked choice. Service surly. Learn to smile! Breakfast was much better and the same staff seemed happier...perhaps a good sleep helped. Lounges and bar very attractive but it was annoying to have to go to...

We had a great weekend here. The staff were friendly, the food was good and the atmosphere was relaxing. It was a little hot at night, but nothing an open window couldn't cure. The hotel is easy walking distance from the city centre and attractions.
