We just stayed one night and had no time to look around the area. Everything about the hotel was good, starting with plenty of free parking. Decor smart and comfortable. Our evening meal was better than we would expect from a hotel restaurant and service was great. Our ground-floor room was nice, comfortable and very clean. No free-standing shower but good shower over the bath. Breakfast was a very good buffet and my son loved the pancake-making machine (tiny pancakes but great novelty value!). I loved the pool and jacuzzi - good changing room with spin dryer for swimsuits.
We were welcomed into the hotel. Receptionist was very friendly.
Room was very small and breakfast was charged £20 extra for the 2 of us. I do think that the hotel wasn't cheap- breakfast should e included, especially as there was no separate dining room. It was served in the lobby.
First impressions when I drove up weren't very good as there was a big skip/container outside and builders' vans and it didn't look very inviting. As soon as I was greeted at the door however it was clear that the hotel was being refurbished. It was very clean, newly decorated with new carpets and furnishing throughout. The building works were contained and did not affect the areas we used so my initial concerns were allayed. The bedroom was very fresh, bed was very comfortable
le and the en-suite bathroom well designed. The breakfast was good and freshly cooked to order.
We checked in quickly and were escorted to our room. It had good facilities but the walls were a bit bashed. Bathroom was very cold but this was quickly solved by a hot shower. Shower was fine. Dripping tap needed new washer but did not bother us at all. Beds were warm and fine. DIY breakfast in room with mini fridge was excellent. We were not hurried out and it all went extremely well. Good place for drinks before we went out too.
We will stay here again.
Didn't know what to expect when I booked. We were greeted by the friendly Gill who looked after us very well. They have one lovely room with a comfy four posted bed You are in your own area of the house so feels very private.
Breakfast is served downstairs as was very tasty.
Would stay again,
