We stayed here with our girls in july for my youngests birthday. Hotel room was spotless. Staff were lovely. Food was yummy as always. Have no complaints what so ever. Only downfall for this hotel is no onsite parking and no pool. Thank god for waterworld. 😊

What can i say..firstly when we arrived we were greeted by a really unfriendly woman that had an attitude..she asked did she want a cot for the child and when we said yes that would be great she replied 'well actually...

I have stayed here a few times before however this July I was very disappointed with the service, no music in bar, limited food, no cot in room as requested and then it took several requests to get it. The tea cups weren't lifted after room cleaning and it was very hard to get fresh cups and tea. the staff... More

My wife and I arrived on Sunday afternoon at 3p.m. we had to wait 30 minutes for our room to be ready at this time of day. The key cards broke twice so I had to keep returning to reception to have them activated. Guy at reception looked like he didn't want to be there and he left me waiting... More

We called in here for dinner about 7pm. Restaurant not open so we were directed to the bar. Limited menu but thought we would have chowder followed by cod and chips for hubby and chicken curry for myself. There was no chowder so we decided only to have main. The curry was to say the least bland. It seemed to... More

Called into the bar of this hotel to meet colleagues and found a very cold atmosphere the minute I walked in the front door, I would have thought management would have this hotel in ship shape considering the history of the hotel and the fact that ten people lost their lives in a fire in this hotel back in 1980....

Quite possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, with the worst customer service. We stayed here ahead of a wedding and upon arrival the receptionist could not have been less bothered. Whilst being on the phone in between speaking to us he took our money and gave us the keycard with no information on where we were supposed... More
