The rooms were extremely comfortable and very clean and well equipped . The food was excellent and the staff could not do enough for their guests.The type of place you will stay at again. Where it is situated it is in a perfect position for the railway station and the motorways.

A lovely meal in a friendly welcoming hotel. Good varied menu and great customer service. Would definitely call again if passing through. A great place just to have a drink at the bar as well. I can recommend this hotel to anyone, it's just a few minutes off the motorway!

It has a great ambiance, a good menu with something for everyone including veggie choices which I often find are few and far between. Service with a... More

Our second time visiting this hotel for an evening meal and it was even better than the first. Food choice excellent and tasty. Big portions. Staff very attentive and pleasant. Restaurant and toilets both have nice fresh modern decor and are very clean. Would be happy to return and recommend it to anyone.
