I booked two rooms for myself and my parents for my local wedding and we had an amazing stay! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious with a lovely big bathroom and it had a really luxurious feel to it. Just a small thing but there was no hook on the door or around the room and it would have been handy for hanging up my wedding dress but I used the wardrobe instead. Breakfast was served in such a beautiful room with a very relaxed atmosphere and it was really tasty. When we stayed there was a bit of a staff shortage for breakfast time which we were warned about due to some having to self-isolate so with that being considered the service was surprisingly speedy. Overall we had a wonderful stay which was just what we needed in the run-up to the big day - thanks so much!

Lovely hotel, could not fault it. We had a beautiful room (14), very luxurious and spacious, good coffee, plenty of bottled water, and even lager in the fridge which was all complimentary.
