Great Hotel
Very nice hotel with onsite parking. The swimming pool was warm and a good length and had good opening times. The games room was fun. The hotel was dog friendly. All the staff were polite and friendly. Breakfast had a variety of foods to choose from and was hot and tasty. There is a bar which you can pay by card or charge to your room.

Great stay
Lovely friendly relaxing stay. Nothing too much trouble. Would upgrade to a standard room from a small double next time due to en-suite being like a cupboard with the sink being very small. Will definitely go again.
