"Room provided was a suite when a standard double was booked, no extra was charged so I certainly can't complain, the web site is not as good as the hotel!"
"Sunday evening menu could have a better variety than purely "Sunday Roast", the quality was good but more of the normal Monday to Saturday menu should be offered."
