Stayed for two nights on business. The room was very small, although clean and the bathroom was tiny. We had to check out very early in the morning for flights, and we were left entirely to our own devices...shame, a touch of customer service would have made a huge difference. We dined at the restaurant which was nice, friendly service.... More

Very cold evening but instructions on room heating very misleading and asked reception for help, and delightful lady came to help,. But she didn't understand instructions, and she fetched us an extra duvet, which... More

Spent one night here on business. I have stayed before and it was ok but I was much less impressed this time. It was very hot which made things worse but my room was noisy and wasn't helped by staff/someone having conversation outside at 0130. Noisy fan/unit rattling and humming away all night too. Otherwise room/bathroom clean and decent enough... More

Orange carrot very al dente, purple carrot couldn't cut with knife.My partner had tiger prawns in parsley butter - not impressed. Note, please, we are not fussy eaters normally.

I love the ability to get to and from the room without having to go through the pub and round to the carpark; the room was pleasant; the beer was good; the staff were friendly; the bar food was nice. And the water is nearby for strolls if you have time.
