As we were part of a tour party it took a while to check in. The queue for the quaint antique lift slowed us down a bit, so we went for a drink in the welcoming bar. Great staff and nice comfy chairs to sink into. Once up in our Standard Double room, we found a very clean facility. the...

I recently had the opportunity to stay for a night at Distinction hotel, the check-in was smooth and easy. I was upgraded to room with a spa - the check-in staff indicated it was the best room in the hotel. The room itself is situation in the older wing of the hotel. They have an old elevator with manual doors...

Our 2 day workshop experience was seamless due to the tireless work of the team - especially Theresa who took such great care of us all during the day and the wonderful hotel manager who ensured that nothing was to much trouble.

Not a large room but a bathroom big enough to move without bumping in to anything. Neatly appointed, easy wi-fi access, free parking and great service from everyone. They've even got one of those old gated lifts that works and works well. However, the highlight would have to be the food a their restaurant, Nosh. Hearty, generous portions, delicious, sensible...

We arrived to a warm welcome from Chris at reception. Rooms had everything we needed, apricot curtains could do with an upgrade. Breakfast was great. David (I think that was his name) from the restaurant team was lovely, great service - thank you.
