Our rooms offer comfortable accommodation for business or pleasure alike. All our room rates include a delicious breakfast. We have an extensive range of great pub food to choose from, including our delicious carvery, so you can join us for lunch and dinner too!

Free Wi-Fi access is available throughout. The rooms come with a flat-screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities and a desk. They all have an en suite bathroom with bathtub or shower, and hairdryer.
