This is our fifth visit the hotel and we chose it on this occasion to celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. There is not one particular thing I would pick out about this hotel as the whole ackage is excellent quality. Only one thing let it down was the room was in a corridor that had not undergone refurbishment. Our room was very tired but this did not affect our stay

This time the food was much better and we upgraded the room which made a lot of difference as it was beginning to get tired all the staff were really friendly this time l guess due to the takeover they've all been on a course
