Visited for lunch, using a Groupon voucher. Restaurant empty apart from us, staff friendly and attentive. Bit of a wait for our food, but it was good. Excellent bbq ribs and garlic chicken. Hotel looks better inside than out.

Excellent value for money. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms. Powerful shower and body lotion in the bathroom. We only had a bite to eat and the food was really good. We stayed just as a stop over visiting family and it was a great find.
