OK at best
Great food but be warned if you want to sleep dont bother staying here. The location is on a VERY busy road that has lorries/ HGVs shaking the building until very late at night and from the early hours. Service was slow, waited 10 minutes to check in and the bar staff were not keen to move away from the bar to take orders, if you could find any staff at all. The food was great both evening meal and breakfast but this place is let down by the excessive noise and the lack of service from its staff.
