Quirky hotel ideal for families

Room was immaculate and beds very comfortable. Staff really helpful and friendly. Grounds amazing and quirky, ideal for children to explore. Was told by staff that the hotel is being refurbished in stages. I would most definitely recommend, good value for money. We will definitely be making another visit.

Thank you for your recent feedback about the Hotel.

Looks ok from outside, but that's where it ends!

Looks presentable from outside, but sadly that is not the case inside. Room was very run down and basic. Service was dreadful. Will not be returning!! Chose an alternative place to stay if you can!
