My wife and I stayed for two nights on a groupon deal in November 2016. The hotel is clean and the rooms very nice. Breakfast was very nice. The hotel bar is very popular and shows live sport. The bar meals were not brilliant. But overall we had a nice stay

This Hotel is not too bad a place to stay. The rooms are clean and warm, but are showing a little tiredness. That's not to say they are bad, just need a little updating. The bar food food menu is fantastic and all the selections are delicious. The breakfast buffet has a good selection and the cereals are all ok.

The room and facilities were good and catered for my wife being in a wheelchair. Staff were all friendly and helpful and,of course, this went a long way towards our stay proving to be rather enjoyable, even though it was only for one night.

We found the room very clean and tidy we had been given a room that had a shower for the use of disabled guests. The room was over the bar and has ear plugs were supplied for our comfort we did not have to resort to using them.
