My hubby and I stayed here as we were attending the Rotary Conference at the spa. The location for us was perfect. The hotel we found wasn't really value for money.

This hotel is over priced in its present condition, it need decorating in the corridors and rooms, and the bathrooms replacing. The Windows and carpets could do with a clean. On the plus side the staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are freshly cooked and plenty of choice.
