Nice holiday, friendly staff in restaurant. They could have been friendlier in the bar. Breakfast was good but waitress rushed you to eat. Bedroom clean as was ensuite. Not a hotel for a holiday as location on an industrial estate.

This hotel looks impressive and has its own indoor pool and a nice restaurant. The breakfast is very good but the rooms themselves are average at best, more motel than hotel in style. The best thing in the room is the shower it's very powerful with good temperature control.

I stayed here twice in the space of a week but I rather liked the place. It looks rather dated and some of the decor may seem a little 1970's but overall the hotel is very nice. Decent size warm rooms and lovely beds. The food in the bar was lovely and not that expensive. Leisure complex looked nice but...

We booked a double room for one night as we were visiting family living nearby. I was shocked by the price - £112 for B & B. As we already had a busy schedule the spa wasn't of interest to us. We were allocated a room with a 4' 6" bed which I consider small, fortunately after revisiting Reception we...
