The only issue we had was that I’d forgotten the deal included a 2 course meal not 3 courses so we ended up paying more than we’d planned. We’d asked the waitress if dessert was part of the deal and she confirmed that it was. It would have been better if she’d clarified that the payment I’d made was for 2 courses, not 3, one of which could have been dessert. Everything else was great and exactly what we needed for an overnight stay.

couldn't get twin room (the room we were given was far too far away from main part also far too near motorway) The dinner was to say the least rather disappointing with uncooked vegetables and scalding hot plates which could of actually burnt someone

Nice spa facility. Sensible draught beer prices. Good breakfast - and very attentive (more mature) staff!

Dinner service was SO slow! Food was average. The hotel is slowly converting to becoming a Holiday Inn and you can tell that certain things are not being updated, refreshed or maintained as a result.

The food when we got it / good staff just to busy .
Other Comments
The staff are very friendly, the food both breakfast and evening meal was fine , but the room was so hot we were unable to sleep with Temp around 28/ 29.5 c . Also the fact that they had two weddings on Saturday and because of staff storage they took the staff from the restaurant, the wedding party could not get any drinks so came into the bar which meant over 20/30 people lining up for drinks . So aircon and the hotel telling us about weddings to allow us to make other plans .
