This hotel needs lessons in service and courtesy. Although a reasonable location the parking facilities are poor for residents during the day.

From the moment we arrived it felt as though every request to staff was a burden....

I won a one night stay in this hotel bed and breakfast and a two course evening meal. The twin bedroom was comfortable and spacious enough and bedroom facilities were good. The ensuite bathroom contained both bath and shower, which was great. There was no ventilation or fan in the bathroom and that would be my one complaint about the...

The hotel, staff, rooms, bars restaurants and evening meals were first class, the only criticism was the breakfast which was actually cold even though it was on a heated trolly, the eggs were overcooked and thrown on top of one another. There was total confusion around the toast making facility and also the coffee dispenser. We would certainly go there...
