We welcome the whole family, from Grandma and Grandad, to babies and toddlers, older children and teenagers to Mum and Dad, and we can provide a cot or additional beds at no extra cost* in an adult room, or choose a Classic Family Room, for more space.

We strive to make your stay as fun and exciting as possible, which is why our hotel has a range of board games for you to borrow at no additional cost.

Customer testimonial – September 2020

‘I have had a couple of phone calls this morning from customers saying they had a wonderful time. The hotel allowed us the use of a function room, which was quite a size, on three nights so that Chris could entertain our customers with quizzes etc (everyone social distanced of course) Food was very good.

This very comfortable hotel has everything possible in place to keep you covid safe. Masks are worn when walking around the reception area and corridors, there are one way systems in place with plenty signage, many hand sanitiser stations and our group had our own meal time slots. Staff were wonderful and Rachel deserves a special mention because she is one of the best hotel employees dealing with groups that we have come across. Her information and organisation is excellent.’
