The hotel itself is well appointed with modern facilities and the common areas are kept clean and smart. What let the stay down were the following issues, firstly the view... More

We stayed in room 30 one of the bungalow rooms, it was light, airy and clean with wonderful views from the patio doors. Dinner was good and served... More

We got married here yesterday, the staff were absolutely amazing, attentive and the toastmaster was incredibly cool, calm and collected. Nothing was too much trouble from booking right through to this morning. The room was set up perfectly by the staff and I couldn't have imagined it to have been any better. The food was fantastic too! Everyone had an... More

I have watched it grow and develop.It seems now though as they would rather cater for large parties to maximise their profits.The food is still good but the prices have gone up to compensate for all the improvements they have done. Drinks prices have also gone up. Previously you could... More
