I purchased a Dealrush 2 nights B&B, 1 dinner, free drinks voucher. I was amazed at the quality and selection of food available and impressed by the efficient and friendly staff. Our bedroom was to the front of the hotel which proved a bit noisy on the Sunday night, but apart from that we had a great weekend.
