Attended a wedding reception here and stayed overnight. Staff were friendly and helpful, establishment was clean and had a lovely ambience, food was fantastic. There was quite a few of us and not one person had any issues. I would definitely visit again!

Booked this hotel for 1 night for my partners birthday. Rooms are great, really spacious and clean. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was perfect lots of variety :-). Overall stay was great no complaints. Oh yes and if you drive you recieve a discount voucher for a local Q car park literally 3 minutes walk from the hotel.

Complimentary 3pm checkout on a Sunday was ideal for me as I could sleep well past noon after a very late night out. 2.... More

Whilst the bar is a little pricy the staff are friendly and attentive. The breakfast too is a little expensive but does offer something a little extra....bubbly if you fancy a cheeky drink... More
