Had our Christmas Function here on the 16th December 16. We were a group of 17. This must be one of the nicest xmas meals I have had in a long time. The soup was delicious and piping hot.

Booked this hotel for my 50th Birthday Bash! Approximately 65 guests were fabulously attended for by Emma and her wonderful staff. Everyone was made extremely welcome, the food was amazing and the band and photo booth were catered for with the minimum effort on my behalf. The staff are all attentive, without being predatory and the evening was enjoyed by...

I've spent a week in this hotel on a business trip. Very nice rooms, friendly staff, good food. The only thing - I would say - could use some improvement would be the floors, they squeak a lot and it's a little bit annoying especially in the evening or at night. The hotel has its own free parking.
