Booked a room well in advance only to have a call 4 days before asking to switch room types. We did and were 'rewarded' with a nasty room which reeked of cigarette smoke among other things. Not cool!! Was it a bad room? I think pics speak for themselves... two irons no less and a sweet wrapper sitting on the...

What a lovely hotel from the outside but such a pity it seriously lacks in customer service, as has been pointed out on Tripadvisor already, it is a pity Cormac Pettitt is not taking notice of the comments here. I booked our two day break, two weeks ahead, to arrive on Sunday for two days, I got a phone call...

As a group of five friends, we gathered yesterday evening for a very belated Christmas dinner! As a joke, we mentioned being disappointed that there were no Christmas decorations around. To our total shock, the manager arrived five minutes later with a bottle of bubbly in an ice-bucket plus Christmas crackers for each of us, wishing us a belated "Happy...

Stayed here for 2 nights as a deal bought on a discount website. The value was unbelievable considering the standard of the hotel. The hotel lobby is quite open with plenty of chairs to lounge in. The reception staff were very pleasant. The room was perfectly spacious. The bar isn't particularly comfy or cosy but the food was good and...
