We were made to feel welcome straight away. The facilities are great and we...

We recently purchased a gift voucher for my parents to stay in this hotel as a 70th birthday present. They absolutely loved it. The staff in the hotel were great and made them feel really special and they loved the special touch of chocolates in their room. They thought the hotel itself was amazing and a fantastic location. Well done...

Beautiful hotel, warm welcome and friendly and efficient staff. Our room was great, spacious, warm and very clean. Pillows weren't very comfortable but everything else was good. I love a hotel that gives you a biscuit with your tea and coffee facilities - it's the simple things! Eggs Benedict at breakfast were perfectly cooked poached eggs and they had the...
