We stayed at this hotel whilst attending a wedding at a nearby venue. We arrived earlier than our check-in time but the staff were very accommodating and let us put our bags in the room. The room itself was magnificent. Very modern and immaculately clean with a good sized bathroom. The room overlooked the estuary which was a fantastic view....

The rooms were quite small but perfectly adequate for a short stay, the beds were comfortable and had everything you need including tea & coffee making facilities. The bar area and restaurant are lovely and inviting. The location is...

We stayed here, while we were attending a wedding a short while away. The room was comfortable and clean, Breakfast was lovely, there was plenty of choice. The staff that were on breakfast were a little slow and could have had better costumer service. All in all an enjoyable stay and will return in the future.
