Tea/coffee making facilities, flat screen tv and good en suite. Only downside was the bed, which was a double and had one of the firmest mattresses I have...

I live only 20 mins drive away and recently surprised my husband with a cheeky little getaway. Check in was quick and efficient, all staff were friendly and professional. Great value for money and would definitely stay again. Room was clean and modern and the river view was lovely.

Staying here whilst on a course in a Fleetwood. Had the fillet steak this evening and it was absolutely superb, cooked perfectly to my liking and full of flavour. Can't recommend enough. Staff also very friendly and rooms clean and tidy.

We stayed for three nights in January with our 5 month old baby. After we phoned ahead, the general manager kindly saw to our request for a late arrival and all that we needed to support our small baby. The room was very clean and modern, with good facilities. Unfortunately the double bed was small and had a *very* hard...

Ate at the Shard on New Year's Eve and had a fantastic meal. The whole evening was first class and made extra special with nice touches such as prosecco at midnight. We have eaten here before but stopped going as the management seemed somewhat indifferent to customers and the whole place lacked atmosphere. However, since the new manager has been...
