I stayed for a few nights on a work trip. The room was lovely and the restaurant has a good selection of food. There were some problems with internet access one evening, but Caroline was amazing and went over and above to sort out the problem for us. She was brilliant.

6/10 Good

A little underwhelmed
On the plus side, food in the bar was good, tasty and well presented. The room was comfortable and clean. However, service was somewhat hit and miss. Some of the staff were rather abrupt and unfriendly. I feel that the place could be better organised, and could probably do with a decor update too. Not sure if I would call it a 4 star experience, even though we paid a 4 star price!
