  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great location if you have a car. Great food at a reasonable price in the restaurant. Decent, if a little dated pool (but make sure to pre-book a session during Covid). Friendly and helpful staff. Borrowed a fan when the room was too muggy - no problem. Would recommend if you’re driving as car parking is free and right in front of the hotel.

    Lovey Hotel

    Stayed for the weekend … Staff could not have been nicer and very helpful … Had a meal in the bar and the food was excellent .. Hotel room a good size and the colour scheme very calming .. I would stay here again. I would rate it higher than the 3 star rating it advertises . 10 out of 10 for me
