Two night break between Christmas and New Year , excellent value for money. Very friendly staff and food was very good. Family room room was a little small to have two children in there as well on large camp beds but we managed.

Visited over Xmas for 4 nights. Staff friendly and helpful. Effort put in for the Xmas lunch. Hotel short drive into City Centre and easy access to main routes. Rooms clean but new mattresses required as our two singles joined together for double were hollowed from wear.
