Really pleased with this hotel. Great friendly staff, lovely continental breakfast and very nice dinner. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. I usually book 5 star but as this was the highest graded hotel I could find. Not disappointed.

We hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, Matthew Lees. Reception Manager.
