    Couldn't fault the hotel for service, food or price. The only issues we had were the room was quite hot with no air conditioning. Also there was a loud machine sound coming from above the ceiling somewhere.

    We stayed here on our way to Cornwall. Nice hotel very friendly, good clean rooms. Had an evening meal in the restaurant which was very nice. Breakfast was a typical buffet style plenty of choice but cooked well in advance.

    Great setting and plenty of parking. Large room but no lift. Dinner was mixed with the fish being very good but the pork was overcooked. The dinner prices were fine but the drinks are overpriced. The buffet breakfast was excellent.
