Rooms have been refurbished really well and the new section that was recently built is great. The hotel looks lovely, the garden is beautiful and the pool area is great. The bar/pub has a fantastic menu with great food. Their specially made beer is honestly one of the best I have ever had. Emma, the child minder, was superb and very friendly.

Stunning hotel, beautifully decorated and spacious rooms, loved that the kids had their own interleading room. Staff were very friendly and very efficient. Kids loved play area. Had a lovely dinner at the warm and old charm Highlander Pub.

Great blend of the old with the new. The original hotel has been extended with a very modern extention.

Great friendly staff. Quality breakfast alway great to find a decent eggs benedict or Royal as it appears on the menue. Champagne with breakfast is also a good touch.

A lovely garden and pool are also on hand. A play room for the chidren is another good feature. Free wifi is provided.

The restaurant and bar are great for a meal and to unwind after a long day. Try the local beer it wenf down very well.

The room is spacious with a shower big enough to shoot a music video in.
