All have been designed to offer a combination of peace and calm ambience in which to read, work and share a drink or snack with colleagues and friends.If you are planning to stay or just visiting our health and leisure complex, sampling the delights of the new restaurant and bars or attending a function for a special occasion, we look forward to meeting you and ensuring your time with us is everything you want it to be.

Good facilities and very nice room. The breakfast was excellent and the staff seem to be very well trained and very helpful. The swimming pool is a reasonable size and warm. The gym looks very good but I didn't sample it.

Not as grand as first appears. In need of a little tlc. Having said that it is clean and the breakfast is excellent. Will stay here again whilst on business at least but maybe not with the wife. You also have to pay for parking in the hotel car park for some reason

We stayed mid-week pre-Xmas for a short stay while my partner was on business, so it was quiet. Very clean comfortable room. Generous tea/coffee supplies, which we very much appreciate. The location is excellent, within easy walking distance (less than 15 mins.) of the Harbours,

Thank you so much for your review and 4 rating! It really is greatly appreciated. I am delighted to read your feedback surrounding our location and gym. I can't tell you how happy it makes us to know that you are not only returning guests, but that you have been coming back for 10 years! Thank you so much once again for your loyalty. I completely understand your comments on our parking offer. Although we do have over 80 car parking spaces, there are about 8 that are a little more difficult to navigate at times; especially depending on how others park! I hope this wasn't too much of an inconvenience for you. Thank you once again for your feedback.It really is greatly appreciated. Look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future we hope. Best Regards

Thank you so much for your review. Again, we are really very sorry that you didn't enjoy your Christmas Lunch with us. As we mentioned in our private correspondence with you, we served over 200 people on Christmas Day and the feedback was heartening and the CCTV footage from the day showed an overwhelming amount of festive joy. We received much praise with comments and bookings already for next year. Yet, once again we really are truly sorry that your opinion was so very different.
