First visit here, we really enjoyed our stay here, the interior is a bit dated but the staff and service were excellent. Nice bar, and restaurant. The breakfast was very good, and the two course dinner, for £19.99 was a real bargain. Now location, it is a little out of town, £5.00 taxi ride. But once you get here it's...

Very clean, comfortable, spacious and friendly. The family and staff who run the hotel are charming and helpful in a genuine way. Evening entertainment is good and the bar is well stocked. Breakfast is good, but only served from 8.30-9.00am on our visit, although a request to the staff for an alternative time can be made.
