We stayed here for 2 nights and all the staff was fantastic but, inside is one of the worst hotels ive been in.We paid £75 per room with breakfast which on the second morning we didn't have it as it was cold apart from the egg.

The room was clean and relatively quiet despite being located next to or near the A2. The walls between the rooms were quite thin however and voices, doors being shut and the switching on and off of light switches were quite audible. The bathroom was clean, though the faucets moved a little bit. The main light and ceiling fan in... More

We booked for two nights here. We arrived with some trepidation as we had read some really bad reviews on here. There was no need to worry as this hotel is absolutely fine. It's not luxury, but it is clean, our room was lovely and the lakeside view was great. Lakeside room did not suffer from road noise too badly,... More

We booked a lakeside room for one night at the cost of £43, the room was huge with a super king-size bed and two singles. It was dated but was very comfortable and standard of cleaning was good. The television was far too small for the room size. Definitely worth booking a lakeside room as the view was lovely and... More

Thank you for your recent review. Customer service is something that we care a great deal about and this is reflected in how we dealt with the issue in your room. Our views of the lakes are fantastic and if you are in the area again, I would recommend booking our Lakeside rooms for that extra special view. More

We stay here 3 times every year and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when we're in the area I see that some reviewers criticise the hotel saying it's shabby/needs updating etc but I think they are being very picky! We stay in a ground floor lake-side room and that costs £69.50 a night to include breakfast - that is... More
