I checked into this hotel last night and was very impressed with how Gemma at reception made sure all my needs were met for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

Just home from a dinner with work colleagues. Service was poor. Had to ask for dessert menu twice- unable to provide gluten free dessert option other than fresh fruit salad(told no meringue left) and had to ask for the milk for tea/coffee. We have used this venue numerous times and service usually good but tonight was particularly disappointing.
