    4 day break great views. The food was good plenty of choice. The lounge area is a nice place yo relax and have a drink. The hotel does need a refurbishment in some areas. The room was very clean and comfortable. Location is very good.

    Hi there, I travelled from the North East and it took approx 7 hours. Add an other couple of hours from Leeds? Depending on the route the potential stops include Gretna Green. The journey is worth it - hope you enjoy!
