The only negative we found was that the access from the motorway junction. It seemed to be a 12 mile round trip, six miles up and six miles back to get in and out of the car park when we wanted to visit anywhere.

This hotel is obviously undergoing some refurbishment which is good and needed. The bathrooms are looking shabby and the rooms could do with a bit of updating. Otherwise it was a good hotel for the money we paid - saying that I wouldn't pay the full price at least until it had been fully refurbished. I am gluten free and there were a few things on the evening menu which could be adapted - the cheesecake was delicious! Lots of gluten free cereal options for breakfast. Good value for money at Travelzoo prices.

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
