I have stayed at this hotel several times now and I can honestly say that I have enjoy it every time I stay. The hotel obviously caters for weddings, business meetings and special occasions as it has large function rooms at the rear of the main building. I haven't stayed while a function has been on so I don't know... More

The Hotel room we stayed in was spacious, usual coffee and tea facilities, air dryer, decent sized TV and excellent choice of toiletries. The bathroom was a good size with bath and shower. Having read some... More

We had a business lunch here. We arrived early and sat in a secluded area of the bar with coffee. The lunch menu was good, not a vast menu but good. Service was excellent and food quality also excellent. The restaurant was fairly quiet for a Friday lunch time but nevertheless still had some atmosphere. We would certainly go there... More

Stayed for one night as a birthday treat, I have to say the staff were very good, very attentive. The hotel itself is in need of a revamp, rooms were clean but tired, paint work grubby, bathroom desperate for an upgrade. Not sure how it's got a 4 star trip advisor rating !?

My partner booked this hotel for a two night surprise birthday break. We had a wonderful time. Very relaxing break. All staff are very polite and nothing was too much trouble. The evening meal which was included on our first night was lovely. I must also say the breakfasts were 1st class. Highly recommend.

Nicely located hotel, with friendly staff and good facilities. The bar provided us with good food mid afternoon after a long journey. Later on in the resturant the food was well priced and good quality, the menus had plenty of choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful, bearing in mind I have diabetic requirements. The room was comfortable and... More
