Had I read the reviews on here prior I would probably not have stayed.
We stopped the night for a birthday meal. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful.
Rooms are lovely, clean and well furnished. The meal in the restaurant was very nice with good sized portions and the staff could not do enough to help. The buffet breakfast was very nice also, although they did run low on a few of the cooked items but quickly rectified this.
The free wifi was a nice addition given the lack of 3G phone signal. The only downside is the time it takes to log in every 30mins, maybe could consider issuing guests with a username and password daily instead of requiring name, address & e-mail address (just a thought).
The bar is a little pricey but having stayed in a few hotels recently I would say the prices were on par and expected.
Overall would stay again.
