You have to put a notice on your door to have your bed made. It's a joke. Tires. Expensive. The food next door at the MOO is rubbish. I had the ribs, home smoked blah blah, worse than Iceland. Don't waste your money. Also a deposit needed for the pool table LOL money get stuck in the fus ball table.... More

We stayed in a family room for a weekend. The rooms are a lovely and big and we all slept well. We used the pool attached to the hotel which our girls enjoyed. The buffet breakfast was a welcome start to the day, with lots of choice. The staff were welcoming and friendly. It has the Moo Restaurant next door... More

Have stayed here a couple of times at this family run hotel and been given a large room, which was great. The downside was the whole hotel inside looks very tired and the bedroom was in desperate need of decorating. The bathroom was adequate but not sparkling with paint peeling off. The bed never looked pristine when made up in... More

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.
