The hotel is average. Bedrooms are average. Leisure centre is average. The receptionist was very disinterested upon check in. Plus points are the staff in the dining room for the evening meal who were excellent. The food was also very, very good. Please note if you want to bring ice/glasses from the bar to your room, you will be charged... More

We attended a wedding here yesterday, which was fabulous! Between food, staff and the general ambience I could not fault it! BUT....I have the say, the room we stayed in, was just awful! Tatty carpets, Tatty furniture & the tatty bathroom,( which had mould behind the taps on the bath). It really is in need of a serious overhaul! It's... More

We stayed here for 3 nights which went all too quickly. From the very friendly and quick checkin by Rachel the receptionist until we checked out this hotel was a happy place to stay. The staff are all very friendly and are really helpful. We did have a few minor problems but they were quickly and efficiently resolved. The bar... More
