This weekend I stayed at this hotel for my friends wedding. Hotel needs a make over! Very grubby however the bedroom are nice size but again grubby beds very uncomfortable. Staff pulled out all the stops for the wedding which was lovely. I found one member of to be extremely rude towards me which ruined my weekend.

We booked this hotel as it was close to a party we were attending. When we arrived we had to wait over 10 minutes to book in as the receptionist was also serving in the restaurant. When we finally got our room key and got to our room the room was so small with the smallest double bed I have...

Awful food. The panini was on stale bread with congealed vaguely warm cheese for lunch. The breakfast the next morning was worse. We couldn't eat it. They had run out of glasses, cups, butter and eggs etc at 9am of a 8am-10am breakfast service. The orange juice was empty and when I asked for more the man topped up the...

Absolutely awful lunch!! Not only was the food inedible but he staff were rude and inappropriate. Small requests for mayonnaise and a drink we were bombarded with stupid comments, where the waiter was trying to be "funny". When catching up with family I would rather talk to them, than waste my time repeating a simple request being they were trying...

We had an astonishingly good weekend. The hotel regrettably is not astonishing it is very tired and needs a refirb. Some work is clearly ongoing. The staff are excellent, nothing was too much trouble and they made our stay more acceptable. Well done.

Bring your own duvet and some gaffa tape, it will improve the experience enormously! First thing we noticed was the postage stamp sized, thin duvet. Luckily we had our own normal size duvet. Mattresses needed replacing, you can feel the springs. We laid the tiny duvet on top like a mattress protector so it was more comfortable. With just that...
