I went up for my brothers wedding. It was all wonderful apart from a few hiccups. Tv was useless. Only had patchy freeview as the signal was so bad. No WiFi in the rooms. At all.

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. Obviously I am disappointed with some of your comments. Since your stay in October we have addressed some of the issues, namely the decor in the rooms, the pillows and the square sausage. We are currently looking at extending the WiFi so it is available in all rooms. Whatever the issues...
