I attended one of the Christmas Party nights at this hotel with a range of different age groups. The night was fantastic, food was great and service was brilliant. We decided to make a weekend out of this because of the hotels location and do some Christmas shopping. The rooms were very clean and spacious, the staff cleaning the rooms were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Checking in and out was also a great experience, staff were very friendly and full of smiles. Will definitely be back. Also hot chocolate while leaving was a great last minute touch.

We were really apprehensive to stay after reading recent reviews about the hotel but decided to try anyway with a contingency plan in place. I have to say, the negative reviews couldn’t be further from our experience. Check in was great. Given all the info we needed from the start by a really lovely receptionist. This outstanding customer service was reflected throughout our 3 night stay by every team member we encountered - from front office to bar to housekeeping. There were Christmas functions going on over the weekend but these didn’t affect us in the slightest, in fact they created a wee buzz which was nice to walk into. The room was clean with all the amenities you could need. My only suggestions would be that the fan & lights were very loud (just old or loose fittings). Also on ground floor there could be a privacy screen on the windows as the only choice is curtains closed or no privacy. We didn’t have an evening meal but did eat breakfast which was great. Everything cooked perfectly, all options well replenished and although busy there was no wait to be seated. The bar had a decent enough selection and we were happy sitting on the sofa with a drink in the evenings. The hotel itself is clearly dated and could benefit from a revamp but that’s really a non-issue when we are looked after as well as we were. We will definitely be back, thank you for a lovely stay.
