Following a couple of bad reviews we were a bit wary but once we arrived this soon disappeared. There is plenty of free parking and the check-in was very quick. Our room was on the top floor and very quiet. It had been updated and the bed was especially comfortable with plenty of good quality pillows. The only negative was the shower which was a bit noisy but was lovely and hot.
On our first evening we had a few drinks in the bar which were a bit pricey but normal hotel prices. We then decided to eat in the brasserie and the food was excellent - the nicest lamb shank I have had for a long time!!
The breakfast was also good with fruit juice, fresh fruit, yoghurts or cereal to start followed by a cooked breakfast of bacon, sausage,saute potatoes, beans, grilled tomato, mushrooms, beans and black pudding accompanied by toast and tea and coffee. The cooked food was served on piping hot plates too.
We also used the leisure facilities which was an added bonus and gave us chance to work off the breakfast!!
We thoroughtly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to our friends and definitely stay again.
