We stayed here last year as the hotel down the road, where we usually stay, was fully booked. It wasn't a great experience and when there were no rooms available in the Villa Rose this year, we were hesitant to stay here again. But, what a difference! We had a twin room in the new part, which was huge. Very...

I've been going here for over 20 years. When the bank took over it went down hill. I hoped when villa rose took over it would improve. They have redecorated the main bar and toilets and it is fab. Old part needs revamped. Outer room was very noises (122) we could hear the people above us walking about and using...

Our friends and we have stayed in this hotel two days at 14th of April. The welcome was not so pleasant at all. Even I have paid the bill in front of me they wanted to keep my credit card in the reception, that's a big nonsense by the reason of security. After that issue, everything went fine. The room...

Although we had a very good stay with pleasant staff and good food, for a 4 star hotel it is a bit disappointing with the decor. Rooms are in much need of a revamp and modernised. Saying that they are a good size with a good sized bathroom. And if u like to a lot of heat in your room...
