this hotel had the most lovely Christmas decorations throughout - it was a pleasure to sit in the lounge area. We wanted a nice place for coffee and a chat to exchange Christmas presents. The very sensible waitress directed us to a cosy corner with sofas where we ordered hot chocolate, coffees and soft drinks. With two small grandchildren in...

Fantastic staff and setting but crap food .... food is so average it hurts my soul.£8 for breaded goats cheese straight from the freezer is a joke, but not as unfunny as them charging £15 for the blandest , most pathetic chicken burger I have eaten,Served with the stingiest, tasteless potatoes I've eaten in a long time. My partner had...

Originally the room was £165 but then re booked as a few days later it was £125. I had heard great things about the hotel so...

Nice room at the front of the hotel, large bathroom with bath and separate shower, extractor apparently not working. Very comfortable and generous bed. Booking package including dinner allowance not so good as we found it difficult to spend the full amount-no drink included. Menu a little unadventurous especially by the third evening so we tried the Sea Spice in...

Stayed for New Year and as ever the food and service was excellent. The hotel on the face of it doesn't have the best rooms in terms of bathrooms and facilities. But that can be ignored by the comfortable beds and location. The staff make the experience memorable along with the excellent food this is a great hotel.

Spent New Year's Eve here in a party of 10 people. We had a brilliant time at the 7 course banquet and disco, everything to make the evening a success had been thought of from canapés and champagne on arrival to a piper playing the bagpipes before sitting down to eat and again at midnight. The food was excellent, the...

We have stayed here a few times and ate here on boxing day 2016. Always loved the food and service. Great food and the cocktails are amazing. The lions share breakfasts are a favorite with my partner and child. We went there for boxing day lunch this year and could not fault it. The decorations were beautiful, sparkling blue peacocks...

We spent the night here on New Year's Eve also joining the party on site. The food, staff and evening entertainment were superb to such an extent that we're endeavouring to rebook for this event again next year as a group of ten. Thumbs up!!
