The property is currently being renovated but all that does is change the entry point. Having said that it appears that the change is taking a bit if time! Breakfast is excellent and needed nothing.

Hi Trevor, We are just working on renovating and updating our hotel at the moment. We're glad you still enjoyed your stay despite this disruption.

I didn’t like the lack of variety at breakfast. It’s boring and is the single biggest factor of me thinking of switching hotels.

The room we stayed in was modern clean comfortable and quiet. Breakfast included was generous fresh and with a big range of food. Our only real quibble was that parking is at a premium. Although free, if you are not in early you are unlikely to be able to park on the premises. Notwithstanding we would be happy to stay here again.

The car park needs extra spaces. There is no drinking bottles provided courtesy of the hotel and there was no slippers or bath robes available.

Room was amazing and very spacious. Unfortunately shower is not designed very well and water leaks all over the floor every time you shower so this was reported to the front desk as we had to get more mats and towels. Breakfast was very good although they could provide the extra benefit of good coffee not instant which is very cheap and nasty to drink
