We booked this hotel last year for our wedding in September 2011, as we are on a tight budget we decided we would make do as it didn't seem as bad as the reviews stated but we warned people it was run down and didn't advise people to stay. We went last night to confirm details and met the new management. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! Within 6 weeks of taking over it looks like a new hotel, there is still work to do but if what has already been done is anything to go by this will be a fantastic hotel. The efficiency, enthusiasm and understanding of Sarah was a breath of fresh air. The bedrooms are now clean and more modern, the bar is having new drinks introduced including real ales and the place in general looks bright and welcoming. We can't wait for our wedding reception now and are definately recommending the hotel for people staying overnight.
