I love the facilities in this hotel, including the indoor heated pool and the beautiful changing rooms. The common spaces are attractive and light. Our room was a nice size. I was very well catered for as a vegan.

Did not stay in Hotel. Visited here to celebrate birthday. One of the function rooms was allocated to our party and as on Sunday, the carvery was ordered. Very good quality food that was varied and very ample. Lovely meal.

We found the hotel room very pleasant, clean & practical, the lounge bar was very pleasant & the breakfast very good. We did not eat our evening meal at the hotel but the menu looked good. The shower facilities were also good, however we only had one towel issued for two people!
