Came for lunch as a group of approx 80. The Hotel served up lovely turkey and ham dinners with all the trimmings. The meal was very tasty and considering the size of the group served I was very impressed. Would definitely recommend for large gatherings

From check in to check out every single member of staff was gracious and friendly. They genuinely seem to care that you are comfortable and enjoying yourself. The room was old fashioned with a couple of minor maintenance issues needed in the bathroom (replacement grout, loose bath taps) but the bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get up...
