This is a great value for money hotel. The room was huge and great for the 5 of us. The kids loved the pool and the staff were really friendly. We also loved the continental style breakfast bar. The only downside was that the pullout double sofa bed was really uncomfortable.

Hotel was clean with decent sized rooms and staff are friendly. However the place is very dated and could do with a refurb. Only basic breakfast included in price and the spa was not particularly pleasant, the water in the pool seemed salty as opposed to chlorinated. Good value for money overall.

The hotel was average, but not expensive. We stayed for one night to attend a birthday celebration. The room was spacious but found it a little dated. The breakfast was continental and you could help yourself to all that was on offer. All in all a average hotel, ideal for a one night stay.

Visited tonight after a few drinks in the local area, stayed till close and one of my friends was singled out by who I assume was the landlady, using unnecessary language and force to remove him from the pub to isolate him from the group, won't visit again. Ridiculous treatment.

We were given room 400 and it was huge! We were there unfortunately as we have a very poorly relative in the local hospice. As a result we thought we might need to extend our stay but as we are disabled we did not want to move rooms. The owners/staff sorted eeverything out for us. I then gave them another... More
