Lovely room but room was a bit hot. Room held three adults and a seven year old very comfortably. Bathroom a bit dated could do with a revamp but overall not bad Bar was nice didn't get a chance to use the leisure centre. Will definitely go back

We had a great stay over the Easter holidays. The hotel was very suitable for kids and excellent value for money. The food was very good and affordable for a family of five. Pool facilities and soft play available on site. Well located with regard to a number of local tourist attractions. Car necessary.
