I'm not usually drawn to write a review about a place that strikes me as being average. If there is nothing to write home about then why write? However, although I rate this hotel as being average in the overall rating you will see my marks relating to the accommodation and service side of things actually rate it higher. The... More

We stayed here through an Amazon deal which included entry to Beamish Museum not realising how far that was away. Set in an industrial site, it didn't promise much but we were welcomed on arrival, found our room large and well furnished, the only downside being that we were on the road side which was a bit disturbing.

Traveling from Kent to Gairloch Scotland.with Shearing.One of the best over night stays we have had. Room was spotlessly clean.comfortable beds, and a shower to die for! Evening meal and breakfast was of high quality and served with a smile. Well done to all the staff who were polite and had a smile for weary travellers.

Good sized rooms, very large bed and happy, helpful receptionists make this a top class venue. The location looks less than promising but it isn't. It is quiet and there's ample car parking. The hotel is maintained at a good ambient temperature and the building is spotless. I will return.

stopped for one night on our way to Scotland, very comfortable room and good sized bed. We had an evening meal and breakfast included. I must say the breakfast was the best breakfast I had all week. I don,t know what that would have cost as it was included in our holiday.
