    Ok so the Hotel is worn out, needs serious maintenance. However, the service and food are excellent, very friendly staff, Cheap pricing so really no room for complaints. Bit of entertainment but not always great. Pretty good for the price though

    Hi there, I travelled from the North East and it took approx 7 hours. Add an other couple of hours from Leeds? Depending on the route the potential stops include Gretna Green. The journey is worth it - hope you enjoy!
