I have stayed here twice recently, the first was under very difficult circumstances, but I was made to feel so welcome and was really looked after. The second time I also had my Dads' wake here, and had various family stay also. The staff are absolutely fantastic, they cannot help you enough. Where else could you stay and the deputy manager goes out and buys baby food for a guest and brings it back at midnight for them?
The welcome is warm and sincere, all the staff talk about the hotel and what they want to achieve with it, as if it were there own, which shows their great pride in what they do and they never stop working.
The rooms are great value,all slightly different, with various sizes and shapes, so something to suit everyone. The beds are very comfortable and everywhere is spotlessly clean, yet managing to feel homely and welcoming, unlike many other hotels.
The bar food is great and superb value.
The buffet supplied for my Dads' wake was wonderful,I have never tasted such melt in the mouth quiches and vast range of tasty fresh sandwiches and nibbles, the service they gave really took care of everything for me, so I could just concentrate on the day.
There really was nothing else they could do for us.
I cannot recommend the hotel enough, or thank everyone there enough. If there was a higher rating I would give it.
