“Great stay in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 10 May 2011

Stayed here for a work conference. Don't usually sleep well whilst away from home but this was a very comfortable stay. Lovely evening meal in the restaurant, attentive staff and a lovely setting. I didn't nook the conference so I can't vouch for costs but the rest of my colleagues also seemed to really enjoy it

“Dreadful with way too expensive internet”
Reviewed 13 September 2010

Conference accomodation here is really not great, can confirm Jules96. I don't really mind that much that the shower is horrible and that the bed has huge dip. What really, really pisses me off is that I have to pay 5 pounds for 5 hours of internet - in addition to the 70 pounds per night! Internet is free at even the cheapest hotels these days. I'll never come here again, that's for sure.

“Gives 'Basic' New Meaning”
Reviewed 5 September 2007

I would be worried if my kids got rooms here as student digs - as adult conference accomodation it's appalling. Small and poorly furnished rooms, beds lumpy and dipping in the middle. Washing facilities truely dreadful. It can't be classed as a shower - it's a mixer tap that comes out of the ceiling. No where for the water to run away to except on your bit of carpet. Food variable - quite a decent breakfast but the evening meal had all the problems of mass catering - dry meat, soggy veg. School dinners really. Could be endured as a cheap venue if it was nearer town -but it's not. Long walk along busy main road before you find a shop or a restaurant.
