Thank you JULIE E for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay. It was a challenging time over the New Year period due to the lack of water/heating. I personally chatted with many guests during this time and I can honestly say bored was not an emotion I was feeling. Concerned, worried, apologetic yes and more...

Just spent a 5 day break here on a Shearings trip. Hotel felt a bit tired, especially the Bathroom. The bedroom was large and clean. All the staff were excellent, especially the dining room staff. The food was very good, with a varied choice each evening. The entertainment was generally good each night.
