Spent a night in this hotel for one night as a stop over and we were very impressed with our stay. The price was very reasonable. The room was adequate, very clean and warm. The breakfast was a bonus again, considering the price. Loved the location opposite the river, would be extra special during the summer. Car park huge. Restaurant... More

We went to this venue on Christmas Day for lunch and had a wonderful time. The staff were all friendly and cheerful and there was a lovely warm atmosphere. The food and drinks were very good too, and there was a surprise visit from Santa Claus. We will definitely go back there.

Our room was traditional and fairly big with a double bed, TV, tea and coffee facilities, hairdryer, wardrobe etc. The bathroom was bright, clean and... More
