Stayed here for a night. Had a really nice meal in the bar, a nice slice of cake from the bakery section and lovely breakfast the following morning. The room was big, nice but not exceptional and the leisure centre is grand, again not amazing. Staff were good, overall we had a lovely stay.

Stayed one night. Excellent location, rooms, facilities and food at a very decent price. Big rooms with really good beds. Spa was included in price and worth visiting. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was very good, but not "fine dining". I would recommend this place.

Hotel was centrally located to local attractions directly off the motorway. We did not eat in the restaurant but the pub had good food and service was great. On the evening we were there they had music which made it special.
