NOT OPEN FOR BUSSNESS. I turned up there only to find out it shut down 2 weeks earlier they didn't have the commodity to feel people that had booked that they had shut down.

Don't go
Booked this hotel for the bank holiday weekend as we were watching the manics at the arena in the Saturday night. Pleasant 4 hour drive down to arrive to a locked door with no response to the door bell. Phone number was unresponsive and no alternative on the Web site. Quick look at Facebook revealed they'd ceased trading 4 days ago. Brilliant. An email would have been nice!
