Great service - we found all the staff to be welcoming and friendly. The twin room was cosy and comfortable and the hotel's leisure facilities are excellent. The leisure club seems popular with locals and you can see why. Very pleasant relaxing hotel.

lovely room. I ahd difficulty climbing stairs. As there were building alterations, the restaurant was temporarily upstairs and the reception and coffee shop staff arranged for me to have my Breakfast in the coffee shop downstairs. I was very well taken care of.
