Central position. Handy to shopping and facilities Reception staff not particularly helpful. We arrived earlier than check in time which was 3 p.m. Felt we could have been offered somewhere to sit in lounge instead of having to wait almost 3 hours in car

I didn't think that allowing someone to park a massive boat and 4x4 in the main entrance was appropriate. It congested the parking area making some areas difficult to negotiate into, and made driving past it to get into the main parking area somewhat challenging.

Hi, Thank you for your message. Our carpark is limited and we do not allow oversized vehicles to park in the carpark unless they are out of the way from other vehicles. At the time of your stay we did allow a vehicle to park along the entrance and this was a rare occasion. We do apologies if this inconvenience you. Kind regards Matthew

A nice place to stay with spacious rooms and an excellent restaurant. Friendly staff. A little road noise but wasn’t bad and didn’t stop a restful sleep.
