Positive Reviews

Delicious food in the Italian restaurant

The Italian restaurant is visited by the public also and has many great reviews. They specialise in fish which many have commented on to say it's perfectly cooked and is definitely worth a try.

Superb rooms

The rooms are spacious and well-lit and also benefit from king beds in some. Many reviews mention how clean and comfortable they are also and this is a main reason they will return and stay again.

Great atmosphere

The hotel has been open for many years and the owners have many reviews from previous guests stating they really make you feel welcome and work hard to make the guests have a wonderful stay.

Negative Reviews

Ridiculous prices in the summer months

The price per night in the summer months as well as school holidays rises quite a lot, many guests have complained about this however most hotels do this unfortunately.

Decor dated

The decor is not to every ones taste unfortunately. It's described as needing an uplift and a revamp. The pictures show it's very traditionally decorated throughout the rooms and restaurant.

Overpriced in comparison to others

There are a lot of previous guests who have expressed their feelings on the pricing of the hotel as well as the food. The restaurant charges a lot more than most in the area however that being said, the reviews also state the food is very nice.
