I stayed here for just one night on a business trip and have to say how pleasant it was.
I had free wifi which for me worked great, the room was very spacious, modern, great view and very clean. The staff were very friendly, helpful and willing to help where they could - even printing directions to the closest petrol station with fuel to sell.
I sat in a pleasant lounge, chatted with a couple of locals aswell as other guests while watching the game on tv, you could have sat around the corner if wanted to aviod a game of football.......
The home made curry was fantastic, the spices were spicy and not hot, the meat was plentiful and very tender, the value was fantastic. Pudding was good but no where a match on the main course.
Staff - they were all very nice, from the moment I checked in I was a client and spoken to and the simple things count when you are away working on your own, it is great to be spoken to like a person and not as if it is all strained and just for show or because 'thats what I am paid for'.
The grounds are very well kept and it was nice to see families out playing on the various grassey areas having some fun in the sun.
My question is always would I stay here again, very easy this time, with out a doub I will and I hope it will be next year at a similar time.
Thans to everyone here, Gary, Alex,Tim and all the other staff who work hard to provide a good service and over all experience.
