Stunning Hotel well worth a visit. The rooms are large and very comfortable. We had a 5 Coarse meal on this visit and it was Excellently cooked. Couldn’t fault it in any way. Cooked or un-cooked breakfast both were enough to set you on your way. Staff were all very friendly helpful and Professional. Thanks

“A Perfect Weekend Break” ~ Tripadvisor

“Our rooms were spacious and looked to have been recently renovated. They had a well-presented bathroom (bath plus overhead shower), flat screen tv (freeview channels only) plus the usual tea / coffee making facilities. The beds were comfortable with a modern duvet and the rooms were expertly serviced each day.”
