Excellent Service. Rooms were of a good standard. Hotel is about 1/2 mile from town centre(walking distance). All of the meals were very good quality and the staff were very helpful and did everything with a smile. We had good entertainment one night, not so good the second night. Overall I would recommend this hotel to everybody.

Nicely situated with pleasant gardens. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are really good. Rooms are fairly small but nicely done. There is no lift however and parking is limited (although there is plenty of street parking nearby).

Love this hotel the staff are so friendly and accommodating. As non residents we booked an evening meal. It is five courses and they were all very nice and not too huge. The service was excellent and it was good value. We then adjourned to the lounge with coffee and were entertained by a male vocalist who was very watchable
