    • Good on the whole

      Long walk to the room. Comfy big bed (for one) but I couldnt have a shower as it was over a very high-sided bath with no grab handles. A mat was provided, but no use if you cannot get into the bath. Staff were very friendly and helpful, especially on check-out, when they agreed with me that over 20 for 3 glasses of wine was exhorbitant, and suggested that if I came again I brought my own. Food was well cooked, with tasty sauces and portions were just right. Plenty of vegetables and potatoes with main courses.

    • Good all-round hotel, but not exactly dog-friendly

      This is a good standard hotel at reasonable prices. Bedrooms and extensive public rooms are clean and pleasant; food good; staff excellent, friendly and helpful. Very good sized car park. Good to have free wi-fi without complicated login procedure, but it was sometimes quite slow. Could do with a better lift. My one complaint: the hotel claims to be dog-friendly, but IT DEFINITELY IS NOT! Yes, for a small fee you can keep a dog in your room but there is not even a small place within the very extensive dining areas set aside for people to eat in the company of their dog. Of course, you could have room service, but the room was not well set up for that. Pity, will not be staying there again because it was otherwise a pleasant, affordable hotel.

      The hotel staff were very friendly and the hotel was spotless .the food was nice and the choice you had for breakfast was outstanding they catered for everyone . The bedrooms were a good size with plenty of hot water and I liked that you could get extra tea and coffee at the reception desk . Will be using this hotel again

    • Tired place

      We stayed here for a family birthday and were really surprised by how much this place has deteriorated, the carpet in the. hallway was curling up and filthy, the room was way overdue for a refit, very disappointing

    • Would not recommend to stay here.

      Was disappointed on arrival had been over sold a room when the one family room would have suitably fitted our family of 5 easy. They did offer to not charge us for 2nd room which was something of a conciliation, however 2 of our family preferred to sleep on relatives floor than actually stop here. Corridor carpets were soiled and smelly. General musty damp smell in family room and carpet didnt get walked on with bare feet, cobwebs throughout corridor, not sure pics pick them up on staircase. .Did not use shower due to disgusting mould condition. We didnt use breakfast facilities either as again mouldy damp smell throughout hotel. As committed to charge of 1 room only 3/5 actually slept there and thats all we did spent day/evening out and got up early and left. In need of some upgrades and improvements. Lots of coach trip guests over 60 who may not mind these conditions it seems. Fire doors extremely heavy and difficult to get through with luggage without injuring yourself with weight of fire doors, not suitable for old and frail or young guests.
