We stsyed two nights on a Groupon Deal. Very welcoming, comfortable room, friendly stall, with a lovely breakfast. Our bathroom had been refurbished to a high standard. And the dining room was being decorated also. This did not detract from our visit. We would certainly visit again.

My husband and I have stayed at the hotel on two other occasions, and know that it is a good hotel and the staff genuinely care. However, perhaps we have not stayed in the winter before because the large room that we we were given instead of a cottage (I had a Groupon voucher that stated double room in the...

My wife and I stayed for two nights on a groupon deal in November 2016. The hotel is clean and the rooms very nice. Breakfast was very nice. The hotel bar is very popular and shows live sport. The bar meals were not brilliant. But overall we had a nice stay

This Hotel is not too bad a place to stay. The rooms are clean and warm, but are showing a little tiredness. That's not to say they are bad, just need a little updating. The bar food food menu is fantastic and all the selections are delicious. The breakfast buffet has a good selection and the cereals are all ok.
