Yes, it's just another standard, chain hotel but it's a decent one. The setting is very nice. I went for run locally and there are lots of local villages to run through. It's getting tired and needs an update. However, I used the gym for the first time this year and it is very good, especially for free weights.

The food at breakfast and dinner was delicious, with plenty of choice and good sized portions. The bar area was welcoming and well stocked, serving both alcohol and various hot... More

The best 'Best Western Plus' hotel we have ever stayed in and rates very highly amongst other hotels. ALL staff were exceptionally helpful. The hotel itself was clean and had many interesting touches.

This was an expensive holiday and it has to be said... More

Good food and they cater well for gluten free diets. There was a small problem with our shower and it was fixed immediately. I couldn't recommend this... More
