Perfect place to stay for couples or anyone looking for a posh but relaxing break. Bedrooms were extremely clean along with the rest of the hotel. Would definitely come back and would definitely recommend to a friend.

It is old fashioned and dated, but that is its charm. Rooms are excellent, well fitted out, well decorated and clean. The staff are very attentive. The leisure centre is superb. If you have time try the afternoon tea, it is superb.

A very relaxed experience and particularly enjoyed by the mums! Had a table for ten booked. We were a little early but that wasn't a problem as they weren't too busy and showed us to our table straightaway. They also had no problem in accommodating to extras! Lovely, relaxed service. Nothing was too much trouble. Food included a slightly random...

The staff, swimming pool and food were fantastic, unfortunately not everything followed suit. There was plenty of parking available for free when you register your car at reception, the staff were really helpful and my swim was finished off with an enjoyable 5 minutes in the steam room. The restaurant offered a wide variety of food, all of which was...

Old fashioned furniture in rooms, but very clean and pleasant.All this was totally spoilt by everything in the dining room. The room itself was badly lit, some lights not working, tables unsteady, flooring not conforming with health and safety in one place. The staff were all very young and virtually untrained in their duties, the breakfasts were just perfect, but...
