Business overnight - good quiet room, working shower, basic TV and very basic breakfast - just what I would normally expect from the HIE genre. One aspect I didn't enjoy was - having driven long and hard and arrived quite late - I was greeted by a huge cloud of cigarette smoke

Thank you so much BigWoo for taking the time to review our hotel, I would like to apologise for the mix up regarding your dessert, You are very correct that custard is not mentioned on the menu for the sticky toffee pudding and it was wrong of us to assume you would want custard, I will be passing this on to the team so this does not happen again. I would also like to apologise about the waiting time for your food, I will investigate to find out why there was a wait and again deal with it so this does not happen again. I am pleased your room was good and we hope you come back and stay again. Kind Regards

Stayed here for a weekend with my partner. The room was quite small but plenty big enough for the two of us. The room was so quiet and the bed so comfy that we got a great night's sleep. Although there wasn't a huge range of food for the buffet breakfast, there was plenty enough
