Sunday to Tuesday stay for a birthday treat for myself and sister. Booked a twin downstairs room as hotel doesn't have a lift. Surprised to be taken outside and round the back of the hotel to what looked like converted farm buildings. The room was fabulous. It was clean and modern with everything you need. Our own little cottage. This...

The room was very nicely furnished, beautiful carpet, comfy bed and great shower - the room was toasty too, the radiator worked a treat. Inside the main hotel, we were...

We chose an executive room which was spacious and immaculately clean. Our room had plenty of character with old beams. The bar area is also full of character but the furniture does need a good...
