Hospitality and service proved a strength with a positive and guest orientated approach displayed by all members of staff throughout the course of the visit - this has impacted well upon overall scoring. Bedrooms and bathrooms are well decorated, the refurbishment seen on the show round shows rooms providing very good levels of quality and comfort. Housekeeping displayed sound attention to detail throughout the hotel, well done to the Housekeeping team. All public areas appeared in very good order with the well decorated and furnished bar/lounge areas being very comfortable. Both dinner and breakfast offered a good selection of well cooked and presented items."
