On arrival found we were booked into a double room, not a single we requested, soon sorted out by efficient receptionist. The room did have a few niggles but once again all sorted by the morning. The hotel itself is rather charming, with some modern touches but some old fashioned areas as well. The service was very good considering the...

We were not too impressed with the management side of the hotel. We had a few complaints and only one was resolved. The hotel seemed to run on very few staff and some were not very forthcoming. I would like to say though that the food was very good although rather rushed between courses. The hotel itself was very clean...

Booked room on a Friday night for the Saturday. Very clean and tidy. Staff are very helpful. However it's very bland & old fashioned. There was a real lack of information within the room. Breakfast times, checkout times etc. No real complaints. Breakfast was ok. Not really worth £100 a night.
