It was pretty quiet when we stayed, which meant that breakfast time was not one big mad rush. Breakfast is a good buffet spread, with a decent... More

As we were guided to our rooms there was a strong smell of manure in the corridors. I stayed in room 304 which I have to admit wasn't the most practical - to get the room you have to walk passed 2 conference rooms - both with see-through doors, so whilst you're in your Jim jams there will be people...

Highly recommended! Just an overnight stay, prior to visiting a nearby garden, at this well located and comfortable hotel . Really pleasant, helpful and smiling staff, nothing too much bother - providing excellent service. Well presented food with a wide choice of breakfast items. (We were even able to have soya milk!) Our room was modern, well furnished and spotlessly... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights as I was attending a wedding locally. The room was comfortable, and the staff were very helpful. Didn't use the restaurant but friends staying there at the same time said that they'd had a lovely meal.
