Beautiful hotel. We were in room 2 which is absolutely stunning, so much space it's amazing. Our friends were in room 6 which is smaller but still beautifully furnished and well appointed. The staff were lovely and very attentive. We had dinner in the restaurant which was great. We definitely will be back.

I've used this hotel regularly over the years and it is always excellent. Very nice traditionally decorated rooms with good bathrooms. very nice bar and outdoor seating area. Excellent restaurant. The staff are fantastic here - always friendly and very helpful. Good parking availability. The hotel is close enough to walk into the town centre if you want

Have been to this hotel on a few occasions and each time the meal was lovely though portion size on occasions is quite big and sometimes off putting. Staff very attentive, professional and polite. Would definitely recommend this lovely hotel.
