Staff were wonderful. We were given an upgraded room. The restaurant food, service and ambiance was superb. At breakfast I had the best ever vegetarian sausages ever. I am going to encourage some friends to come along when we make another visit.

Hotel only puts heating on between 6 and 10 in the evening and between 6 and 8 in the morning. At all other time’s there is no heating in the rooms. This is not something you would expect to receive (or not as in this case) when you pay for a hotel room especially during mid December!
