The staff were incredibly professional and it was a good day all round. The room they picked for us to host was absolutely beautiful.

We stayed with our young grandaughter. The staff make this hotel an enjoyable experience. Any problems were dealt with promptly and efficiently without making us feel that we were complaining 'old codgers'. Food was very acceptable and having the swimming pool was a boon as it was cold and damp when we visited. Some areas could do with a spruce...

This was our second stay. We had an excellent room as part of our upgraded package which was at the back of the hotel and so was quiet. The food in the restaurant was very good, although choice was limited with some dishes not available. We will return.

Have stayed here a number of times as they do a great bed, breakfast and dinner offer quite often. Staff are extremely friendly and are always looking for ways to help. Food is very tasty. Plenty of nice walks in the local area.

I am still in the hotel, but so impressed that I felt I needed to leave a review straight away.
