All round great night


02 May 2015


Me and my fiancée stayed here for her birthday, we had a lovely 3 course meal and a very night breakfast in the morning. I asked for a complimentary bottle of wine for the occasion and there was no hassle they just sorted it out and a bucket of ice with a bottle turned up with our dinner so we was very happy. The whole hotel is very nice and the staff are very welcoming and there for any questions. The room was very nice and couldn't have asked for much more.

Another good stay

Stay here all the time for work. Great hotel, good rooms, great food (breakfast) and a good curry house down the road (Ruby's) for the nights when the steak restaurant is not open in the hotel.
