The hotel was clean. The staff worked hard and were very pleasant. However, the new years eve carvery left an awful lot to be desired as did the breakfast. Whilst we enjoyed the evening, I doubt we will return here.

The rooms are small, bed is not the most comfy and it had a dreadful chemical smell, the bedroom is already...
