Really good food, we only had a main course but the service and food were perfect, I had the chicken in a sage and garlic crumb, my wife had the ribs. Lacked a little on atmosphere though it was quiet. Definitely worth a visit and they accept taste card.

Neither of us are spring chickens. Our children are grown up and have their own lives and the last of our elderly parents passed away last summer. Every one of our previous Christmases has had to accomodate the plans of other people and for the first time ever, this year was just the two of us. We decided to do...

Pleasantly surprised with this hotel! Nice and modern but very comfortable also. It has a good wifi connection too, which is a godsend as it can be the one of the most frustrating experiences trying to do work in your room with poor wifi! Breakfast was nice but expensive for what it was. I paid £14.95 for an omelette because...

Stayed at the Hotel this weekend. The hotel was lovely and clean and the food was amazing, the only downfall was the room and the fact the heating had broken. We has complained many of times throughout the day to enter the room past midnight to again a very cold room. We again went back to the reception in which...

Booked 2 rooms for 4 back in June in the end had to drive through to get written confirmation a month before the event, the communications were poor and had to be done through Manchester. We were upset on arrival to have the rooms on different floors although the booking was made together. At first we were told they were...

Big anticlimax the DJ was pathetic and put some bells chiming 5 minutes after Midnight, he didn't make any effort to get everyone up and and do a proper countdown, what the point of bringing a glass of cheer if there wasn't even a toast. The meal took ages it was around 10 o'clock before we had all been served,...

Lovely staff. However, we paid £300 per couple (there were 5 couples) for all inclusive drinks after the meal was served after wine and only 4 bottles of beer on the table. Only one staff available on the bar, to put up with the amount of customers that had paid for a free bar, therefore no one was able to...
