Everybody had 3 courses, starters, mains and desserts plus drinks. The food was delicious, authentic and plentiful. Service could be a little... More

We came here impromptu wanting an Indian dinner and was pleasantly surprised. Nice restaurant atmosphere and the food was delicious, we weren't disappointed with any dish and we ordered a lot! Our waiter was very welcoming and recommended some great dishes. Would definitely come back again! PS, the menu doesn't do the food justice. Just come and find out for... More

You get what you pay for, it was a room with some beds in. Not the cleanest place and a lot of stuff was broken or not working but the staff were friendly and always happy to help.

I'm a firm believer of you get what you pay for. Stayed here 1st October for 1 night @ £36.99 for a double room. BUT....That price for location is amazing. Room basic but clean. As was the bathroom (only issue was shower pressure being poor and ages to get decent temperature. It was either to hot or to cold) HIDDEN... More
