The check in staff were absolutely fabulously polite and very professional. They made me feel so good to be here. Only disappointed because the cutlery was dirty but overall excellent place to stay and connecting to the pub next door that has a yummy menu is definitely a bonus

pool lovely, cafe good, clean and reception friendly. Disappointed in the tennis court as I thought it was a full size and also that you had to pay to hire it.

The pool and recreational area was great - 1/2 tennis court indoors, pool table had our kids entertained for hours. I liked the late check out which came in handy - the room was so quiet and dark with the curtains pulled, we slept in!
