Bar food first class and Geraldine was amazing made us feel right at home even sang happy birthday to the girls. Can't recommend this place enough, heading back again for another wee stay in March.

Our club was delighted with the service provided by the hotel for our recent Centenary Gala Ball. The food was outstanding and the banqueting staff including Monique, Linda, Sharon, Breda, Mary & Linda were very helpful throughout preparations. It certainly made for a night to remember and all our guests were delighted with the night. Thanks to all

The family room was excellent and had plenty of space. The hotel was brilliant at catering for the young ones so it gave the adults a chance to relax in the spa or the lively bar/restaurant. All the staff were very pleasant and nothing was too much to ask. There was also entertainment for the whole family every night we... More

The rooms were decently sized, perfectly clean, and all the standard amenities. It's nothing spectacular or fancy, but it's decent. For breakfast don't expect anything too fancy either (no potato bread, smoked salmon, meats or cheeses) but it's decent - essentially you're not paying for a 5* hotel, don't expect 5* hotel service, rooms or food. Staff were very friendly... More

Stayed here during the Blues Festival. The hotel was an easy walk to the town centre and food and service were of a good standard. The exterior and foyer decor is unusual and certainly quirky (think Alice in Wonderland) but has an undeniable charm.
