Nice hotel, good location, lots going on and quite busy. Room was ok, staff were friendly. If we stayed again, we would eat elsewhere as the menu was limited.

Fabulous hotel in beautiful location!! Room was quiet, immaculate and front of house staff were amazing! The girl in the restaurant on the Saturday night really would do anything for you in a flash, she was a delight, smiling and rushing all over for anyone, an absolute star and she should be rewarded!! The hotel check in guy was also happy, very helpful and smilie! In stark contrast the only negative was breakfast, Hours are 8-10am, we went down at 9.20am and the fruit and pastries, glasses etc were all empty. I had to ask for everything and she just bought out single items to the table, instead of restocking. We were surrounded by empty, dirty tables. The cooked breakfast didn’t appear to be cooked to order either.... well definitely not the bacon or my hard fried egg! It was a shame as other than that it was a lovely stay. We would stay again!

Great hotel in lovely location
We had a wonderful stay and couldnt have wanted anything more. Covid restrictions meant we didn't try the restaurant but breakfast was delivered to the room and was great. Everything is new and fresh so just really happy with the hotel. Parking is limited but we managed to get a space
