We travelled as a group of 16 on a golf weekend. Patricia at the hotel looked after all our booking needs including the golf.

Myself and 3 friends stayed overnight on Tuesday having played golf. From the moment we entered the hotel I could see the professionalism. The receptionist was courteous, friendly and helpful. When we went to the bar, the barman came to where we were sitting, engaged us in a brief chat. The pints of Guinness were excellent for a hotel. Later...

Called here on Sunday evening. The place was packed with diners. We ordered two main courses at the bar. The young waitress was pleasant and attentive. Meal was served very quickly. I would say it was the best chicken maryland I have ever ordered. My partner also enjoyed a substantial burger. We will certainly be back.
