    Friendly, helpful staff. Hotel accepts dogs and there is a nice little park across the road for walkies. Generous breakfast provision and great service. Guests with pets are usually given ground floor rooms - a bonus for anyone with mobility issues.

    Room smelt of smoke, it was very cold on first night until everyone complained, blind and window broken, couldn’t use swimming pool as was hired by outside use always. Didn’t cater for vegetarians, no cleaning during stay.

    Well located and serves good food, just need to polish up the dinner service menu and ensure staff are adequately trained. There are also some internal decorations to the rooms and common areas that need attention
