Great Hotel
Very impressed. The hotel's main areas have been refurbished to a very high standard. So light, airy and fresh. Put a smile on my face as I arrived. They are in the process of updating the bedrooms, but even though ours wasn't done, it was lovely, clean, comfortable and the bed was really comfortable, with good pillows. I had an excellent night's sleep. The staff were really helpful, especially the manager. We will be back.

Lovely surprise!
What a lovely surprise to find the foyer, bar and restaurant all refurbished. Feels amazing as you walk in. They're still in the process of doing the bedrooms, but even though ours was not done, still lovely and clean. The bed was so comfortable. The staff were very helpful, especially the manager. It was a delight.
