We stayed here on route from Dover to North Wales, after a long days driving through France and a packed ferry crossing, we found this hotel an hour from Dover, far enough away from the hustle and bustle we left behind but close enough to major road networks to allow for an easy onward journey. Travelling with two dogs and... More

Stayed here for a hen for a ladies night. On arrival reception was welcoming. Had a few drinks outside in the afternoon over looking the lake this was the nicest bit to look at, shame you here the traffic but can't be helped. The hotel itself looked very dated, a bit like a cheap hotel abroad. You have to get... More

This hotel is good for a night stop every now and then, I have stayed here on many occasions when away with work. The rooms are of good size, but could do with a update of decor, it is clean and tidy. Also the bathroom is much the same, of good size and clean. The staff are very polite and... More

I've stayed in this hotel several times before but this is the first time I have gotten around to writing a review. My colleague ordered me a parcel from Amazon which I forgot to tell the hotel would be arriving, however, this was not an issue as the hotel accepted delivery and presented it to me on my arrival. The... More

Visited this hotel as part of a package, very disappointed, we reported a blocked toilet on arrival and ended up using the public loos before bed and again in the morning. The room was grubby and the food was poor, a lack of maintenance was evident wherever you looked. Will not be returning.

Dinner was include in the package and I must admit was nothing special and the portions were small. The view from the room was beautiful. We would... More
