Stayed at this hotel twice. First stay room was ok, basic but ok. Staff friendly. When we checked out all was fine, checked bank after leaving and found they had taken the payment three times from our account. Took over a week for the money to come back to us. Second stay, room was very basic. Shower wasn't clean and...

Thank you for review and i am saddened to read that we did maintain the experience you had on your first stay. On review of the monies claimed to have been debited from your account by us, we only took one payment from you on departure. As you had made an online booking for the incorrect night then cancelled it...

We booked a single night here at the last minute, and what a good chance choice it was. Staff great, location also very good, the room and bed were excellent. But best of all was the restaurant, we had the best meal we had had for a long time, all for pub prices. And a heated swimming pool to boot....

We've just returned from our friend's wedding. We had an amazing time. The food was lovely and the venue was ideal. The staff were friendly and made the bride and groom feel really supported. We finished off with a swim in the pool. It was really warm, despite the overcast weather. Would recommend for a wedding.
