We had a great one night stay here. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and welcoming with loads of suggestions of what to do and where to go. Leisure centre was great to use. Its about 10 mins walk into town or the train station. Room was spacious and spotless.

We took our granddaughter and had a lovely visit, the room was really cosy and pool was fab, the steam room was the best we've found in a hotel. Breakfast was very pricey so we opted to eat out but overall we would definately go back.x

Dear D6777TUmichellet, I was pleased to see you had such a great time with your granddaughter at the hotel. We are very lucky to have the swimming pool as not many hotels do. I am sorry you found our breakfast to be a little expensive for you. However with all that we offer at breakfast time I think it is very good value but it is always up to the individual. I do hope to see you all again soon. Regards Chris

Hi It takes no longer than 15 minutes. The busses go from outside the hotel and a taxi would cost around £5.00
