The others had a Sirloin Steak, Fish of the day (in red ale batter) and a Steak Sandwich. All the food was excellent. The... More

There is a car park out the back of the hotel which is free of charge for residents. It is not locked... More

This place looks good from the outside and even the reception , but that`s where it ends . The rooms are falling apart nothing really works in them . This place has not seen an update in 20 years at least .

Our room was next to the lift too which was noisy, but then also the couple next door to us spent the night arguing and slamming the doors for the majority of the night. We did have... More
