The best staff ever
A very enjoyable experience, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The bar area is warm and welcoming. The best thing about the hotel is the wonderful staff, the care and attention they give is second to none. Breakfast was extremely good as was the evening meal.

Very nice stay
Had a really good stay. Taps on the sink needed attention as they were loose. The room was very comfortable. Food excellent. Staff are very good and attentive. Made to feel very welcome. Only thing not pleased about was the parking charge. Did not have this on our last visit only a couple of weeks ago
