Great service! Beautiful hotel! Fantastic Staff! Excellent overall experience! I'm really happy with this venue and the function room used. The staff were great. The staff's attention to details really made all of the difference. Thanks!

The hotel reception is very helpful. The bed is rather soft and the toilet cistern doesn't work well. Was a bit disappointed as it was sold as luxurious hotel category. Had a very nice dinner at Pescatore

What a great way to finish our holiday. The hotel and the room were lovely and it's in a great location, right opposite the park. The staff were all helpful and friendly and the restaurant was fantastic. They also give you a George bear to remind you of your stay. Overall it was faultless.

Well looked after in all aspects, comfortable suites with all amenities, well suited to entertaining or business meetings - professional staff on hand to meet all requirements. Located opposite Hadley Park for an early morning stroll or the more energetic a brisk run. Adequate car parking in a secure off street area - Valet parking if required.
