Easy to park the car and generally good range of facilities for the price.
Ate in a couple of times and the food and service very good and service
Staff were very welcoming, no problem to big and it was to have live music on a couple of nights.

Wifi was a little slow.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms that overlook the AC unit

The dinner in the bar was beautiful but it stopped there. Breakfast was only ok. Potato cubes were cold, no milk on the table, only 1 portion of butter at the table, sausages didn't taste good. Had to find a waitress to order a cup of coffee.
The sheet on the Base of the bed didn't fit. There was no top sheet fitted and quilt cover was not dressed correctly. The room was uncomfortably hot with a window open.
From 7.45am bedroom doors were banging loudly and woke us up.
All basic requirements for a hotel that were not met.
Returning home tired and very disappointed. Money was not well spent.
We will not return to this hotel or recommend it to family and friends.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled as a couple
