A Warm and welcoming stay after a long drive

Great hotel
Staff were amazing, friendly and welcoming. Be prepared for large portions of food, but well cooked. Look forward to returning.

Never Again
Room was absolutely shabby and dated, felt like I had gone back to the 80s! Awful! Noise from the guests in the room above us, noise from the guests next to us! The cleanliness had a lot to be desired too. Far better hotels out there - even Premier Inns, that charge only a fraction of the price. How are these prices justified? Food was mediocre too. The only positive thing I can say was that the staff were lovely and helpful, the only thing going for this hotel. Oh despite advertising WiFi, there was none.

Pleasant comfortable but needs updating.
it was pleasant enough hotel comfortable but our room was reasonably clean but don't think this is the fault of anybody it needs updating bit old fashioned however having said that it on third floor so maybe in the process of updating.

Lovely location. Tired rooms.
Lovely location. Just a shame about the very tired decor in the hotel rooms! Reminded me of on call rooms when i worked in a hospital 15 years ago. Get with the times! Think woodchip wallpaper.
