Stayed here for one night, room was nice enough although in my opinion could have been a little cleaner. Food was nice but nothing special. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Also good as it's just across he road from the the train station.

We visited their restaurant on 3 August 2015 as a family group of six. My daughter and I ordered their roast dinner and what a mistake that was!

Great place to go, staff are brilliant, food is fantastic and always a friendly cosy feel to it. I used to work in the area & this is just as popular with locals as it is with tourists passing through. I have attended weddings, wakes & 21st's here, always faultless appropriate service & great tasty food.

Stopped here on the way north when we got decided to stop driving. We got a lovely warm welcome and the place was heaving with hikers and bikers. The rooms are nice and unique - no cookie cutter rooms and the restaurant is fantastic. A lovely spot, located right next to the train station.

I recently had the misfortune to phone this hotel, to ask if i could make a reservation for my family of 9. I was brusquelly informed that they do not take bookings & when I explained it was to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary, the brusqueness turned to rudeness & I was told in no uncertain terms to just turn...
