Well worth the extra £10 per night for the refurbished rooms with excellent bathroom and walk-in shower. Could do with shelves in bathroom for towels and toiletries but a small point. Very comfortable bed and nicely decorated. Food was buffet style of a good standard.

First time at this Carvery, excellent value, excellent food, what you pay for the Carvery includes a complimentary dessert. There was absolutely nothing to complain about or find fault. Well done all concerned.
