We went for a function with about 60 other people. The bedroom was well laid out, clean and tidy. The function room was a good size. There were 3 choices each for starter, main and dessert. All the food that was provided was very well cooked, obviously freshly prepared and there was not a great wait between courses. The serving staff were very good, in fact all the staff in the hotel were very good.
We ate breakfast the following morning, bacon, sausage, hash browns, beans tomato and options of fried egg, poached egg or scrambled eggs. It was presented buffet style and my one criticism was that the food was only warm as opposed to hot - they need to turn up the buffet warmers. Plenty of toast was provided, coffee tea, and the usual cold breakfast items, fruit etc.
We had a good stay here and if we are in the area we would definitely use it again - just please turn up the buffet warmers at breakfast time. less

Thank you for leaving us this review after your recent visit to one of our function nights at the hotel. It's great to see that you found the food during our function to be to your liking, our chefs work very hard to make sure that guests have a lovely dining experience but to also make sure that wait times between courses are low. We will speak with our breakfast chefs about the buffet layout and make sure that they adjust the warmers according. We will make sure that all our staff are aware of your lovely comments about them.
We do hope that your back this was in the new future and are able to come and stay with us again.
