We have been staying here a few times each year for the past 12 years and have enjoyed most of their rooms from the standard to the luxury with king sized bed. This time when we were quoted £195.00 for one night I was expecting to be put into one of their nicest rooms. This is the most we have... More

Thank you for you feedback following your visit last weekend and I'm so sorry that you encountered difficulties. There cannot be any excuse for less than courteous behaviour from any member of our team and I will be looking further into this. All of our bedrooms were completely re modelled over the last 1.5 years and I'm therefore disappointed that... More

Nespresso coffee and a mix of specialty teas available along with a mini bar. Sky tv available but not sure of level of access. Although we were not significantly disturbed, the... More
