We were attending a wedding nearby and so decided to book one night here and I have to say it was a very disappointing experience. Whilst the decor was a rather dated and tired, the hotel seemed OK on arrival for the price, and staff on reception were very friendly. However, it was when we arrived back after the wedding...

We went for a black-tie / ball formal event. The location is very easy to get to if you know where you are going (if that's not a paradox!) and plenty of parking. The venue inside where the ball took place is also pretty smart and was perfect for the event. The night was well hosted and the venue excellent,...

The hotel needs a facelift and cant sweat the assets forever. Rooms are OK, for the price , £70 with breakfast. Breakfast is very good, the staff are...

Had afternoon tea here with my mother. We both received gift vouchers for it. What a disappointment, the cakes were dry, scone doughy, cream so over whipped it was more like butter.

Having read the reviews for this hotel I was expecting accommodation that were basic and in need of refurbishment and this is certainly the case.
