Kind of looks like it hasn't been updated since the 90's but the bar staff were very nice and friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Bathrooms were clean and the general bar area was clean... More

Had food here recently in the Bar. A very popular place where locals eat and meet. Food was fresh, tasty and served without delay. Reasonably priced. Young bar staff who were attentive courteous and efficient. Would recommend as a place for good nourishing food.

Reasonable food at a reasonable price plus friendly service , clean loo's . A large bar with the usual selection of beers and wine and if you do drink too much at least you're already in the hotel 😀 Definitely worth a visit.

My turkey and ham was edible but not great. Kids meals weren't ready with our meals, so we had to leave ours cooling on the table for almost 10... More

I attended a recent wedding at this hotel. Absolutely amazing day from start to finish. The staff were great. Very professional and prompt at serving approx 140 people! The food was lovely and I feel the day couldn't have went any better for our friends and their guests. The couple themselves said the hotel was so easy to work with... More
