Staying elsewhere locally, this hotel was recommended for dinner. We were not disappointed. A friendly welcome, an very good menu with lots of choice. They even do smaller portions of some of their meals. The food was very well cooked and served and very tasty. Portions were more than enough and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals in a pleasant...

My friend and I had an evening meal here. It wasn't very busy and lacked a little atmosphere but the food was really lovely with quite an extensive menu so definately something on there for everybody. Very reasonably priced and the staff very pleasant!

Only criticism was the problem of the unmanned reception in the evening. One doesn't expect it to be manned continually - but... More

I was greeted on check in by a very friendly receptionist, we were told... More
