Good place to stay
The hotel staff were lovely, friendly and helpful. The outdoor swimming pool was great and the staff helped us to get sun loungers as it was quite busy. The shower was powerful and hit water plentiful. The room size was a good size. There is a bit of painting and maintenance to just spruce up the hotel required as it is a little scruffy in places. Our bathroom needed a clean up and the stairways were grubby.

Lovely family holiday
We found the hotel lovely. It looks like they are spending money making the hotel modern and fresh but still keeping the hotel historic look. We found the staff so friendly and helpful. The pool area inside and out were perfect and you could use them until 10:00 at night. We would definitely stay again and will return.
