The Bracken Court Hotel was, without exception, the best stay of our three-week trip and not just because of the room. From the warm greeting by the hotel staff when we arrived, to the delicious three-course dinner, excellent breakfasts, friendly bar, and unfailingly cheerful helpfulness of everyone, we could not have asked for a better end to our travels.

Hotel is centrally located, free parking in adjacent car park, no direct connection to the hotel. Staff is friendly, helpful & service excellent.

The Bracken Court Hotel must be a great place to work because all staff members we encountered were warm, friendly, personable and above all - hospitable.

Attended a party here, the hotel had another function on at the same time and the two parties never saw much of each other which was nice, we had our own space. Bit of a trek with stairs, not very wheelchair accessible. Staff did their job but weren't overly friendly, lack of bar staff too.
