On the up side the restaurant is good the food and service excellent. Gym is good. The rooms however are a let down and are tired and in need of modernisation. Corridors are dark and dingy, carpets have seen better days. TV standby flashes a bright white light so cover it up before bed.

Without exception all the staff that we came in contact with on our visit were 1st class. All were professional and friendly at a very busy time. The girls in the restaurant were efficient and smiling at all times and nothing was too much trouble.

Excellent hotel for cycling the Tarka Trail. Food always really good and all staff friendly. Both pools clean and warm. Bedroom was a bit dated but I understand they are being done up. As a family of four the bedroom was cosy but adequate.
