This is a clean well maintained hotel and we highly recommend it. the entertainment is second to none and in its self worth the visit.

It's clean and pleasant, and well situated for the local town and attractions. The hosts are warm and welcoming, and the cabaret at the hotel is worth the booking price alone. What's not to recommend? Thanks so much

Great accommodation, great location, friendly staff, great entertainment, well worth the money. Definitely would consider staying again. Small rooms but more than efficient. Free continental breakfast is great and really cheap cooked breakfast was nice too.

All the staff are warm & friendly but I cannot lie, the room was so small it couldn't fit 2 people, which was a problem seeing as there was two of us! The bed seemed very small for a double & was crammed against the walls under the window with no room at either end. The TV was about 10"...
