They have had a recent upgrade of the hotel, it's very well presented and clean, some of the rooms are still very small, but useable. Frustrating that we are unable to book the family room, it's constantly booked up!! Wi go back

I am really disappointed after spending £180 to stay for one night at this place. When first arriving we was welcomed by 2 friendly staff. Going into our room the windows were dirty and the room was average to say the least, when paying that price just for 1 night. When it states for 2 nights it is £160 🤔...

We were charged extra because we had our car in the car park which seemed ridiculous, especially as the room wasn't cheap! All in all I'd say average and not great value for...
