Stayed here a few times but this time we found it had gone down hill. The rooms are dark and shabby. The net curtains looked as if they had never seen an iron - the duvet was so thin - it was freezing as the...More

We went for the carvery. The online price was wrong as we paid £1 extra each. You pay at the bar and walk through to the tables. You get a receipt and hand it in as you get your food. Very average food. Not worth...More
