I stayed here recently for 2 nights on business with colleagues. Decor is a bit 'tired' but the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. Wifi is poor in the bedroom but reception helped me to get connected. Large menu for dinner and food was ok. Best value prosecco ever - £19 bottle and tasted great! 😄 If you are staying,...

If you find yourself in this part of the world with no car your options are fairly limited.

There is a nod to local traditional foods-...

Nice welcoming staff who remembered us from when we booked a few days before even though they hadn't written our names; nice casual touch. Table was ready. Menu had limited veggie options but the veggie burger was good as those things go. Service was slow but friendly and helpful once it got going. A pleasant surprise overall

there isnt a lot of choice of accomodation in this area and this hotel was perfectly adequate. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. It was lovely and warm and we enjoyed our meals. The bar tables do feel sticky but this is not lack of cleaning....it is the finish on the table, lacquer/varnish? It is not luxurious or modern but...
