We stayed at this hotel for 1 night before we went to the airport. Hotel was lovely and clean, the rooms are a bit dated but we only stayed 1 night so it was ideal for our needs. Staff were lovely and very helpful, Food and drinks were good too.

Sorry to learn that the absence of a lift caused you some difficulty but this is not a facility we have. We do not hide this fact but as with most hotels you advertise what you have not what you don't have that said we can generally provide assistance with luggage when specific requests are made.

My Grandsons christening celebration was held here. Staff very helpful, we were able to put up party balloons etc, the Saturday evening before the party on the Sunday. Food very good, most enjoyable. The bar was just next door, but exclusive to our party. Enough to staff were on duty, so. It long to wait.
