We had a recent family meal here. We live locally and I was very disappointed with both the sub-standard food and the state of the ladies toilets. Need to buck up their ideas. If it good quality fo... more

We find this review very strange that you would right a review for the other hotel on the same day as you had allegedly been to this establishment and upon requesting more information you choose not to contact us ? You also have not written a review since 2016 ? Yet two reviews on the same day ? Regardless if we DID LET YOU DOWN ? we are truly sorry, we wish you every happiness when visiting your preferred hotel ?

Thank you for your review, however some of your points are mis-leading, as a rewards member you booked a standard single room, and were automatically upgraded to a garden superior room, plus upon check-out your rewards points were added to your account, all our bedrooms are equipped with fans, both of these certainly contradict your statement, bread is served to all our guests once the food order has been taken which is normal practice in most restaurants ? Thank you for taking the time to post your review
