This was our third visit using the gold voucher offer that is available every year.
Check in staff were friendly efficient and helpful.
We stayed in room 304 which was clean roomy and well equipped apart from the lack of WiFi but there is a Lan cable if you have a mobile router.
Evening meal and breakfast was included in our deal and was well presented and of good quality.
One gripe I do have was that we were not offered a table in the main restaurant an were instead put in a room the other side of the reception area (there were 6 of us)
This was not a problem in the evening as the meal was full table service.
But at breakfast it was a problem as the staff tried to encourage you to have a set English breakfast rather than the buffet. If you wanted a buffet breakfast, which we did. You had to walk across reception with you breakfast!
Parking was expensive at £13 per day but in line with local prices , still does not excuse high price for residents
Bar had limited choice and was expensive, try one of the plentiful bars in town 5-10 minutes away
Would return but only on a special offer
