I booked a room as a guest at a wedding taking place at the same hotel.

I genuinely hope EVERYBODY reads this review, except Booking.com...... Unfortunately we only got a 3/5 but is a truly great message, which is - BOOK DIRECT !!!!!

We took ten rooms for the weekend and ate in the Bistro on Friday night and the main restaurant on Saturday night.

Great to read that a party of 20 friends were so well looked after, even better that you chose to eat with us both nights, taking advantage of our 2 different food options. Not sure if you return to venues on an annual basis but please let us know and I'll definitely not say 'no' ....... Robert Proprietor More
