    Loved our stay here.. Rooms are beautiful and quirky, adding the extra touches. They even have a fridge in reception, offering extra milk & bottled water free. Staff are lovely, friendly, and welcoming, too. Thank you 😊

    Visited for a hen party. We were upgraded to the roof top bar. The roof top is decorated with lots of plants and greenery providing a relaxing and inviting atmosphere, there are heaters (they only stay on for 5 - 10 minutes, so you have to repress the button very regularly!) and lots of fleece blankets available. The bar is well stocked and the food is pretty good. We pre-ordered pizza and tacos. There was more than enough food for the 20 of us. Staff friendly and helpful. We made use of the karaoke room and shuffle boards. We didn't stay at the hotel so cannot comment on the rooms.

    I hired the rooftop bar for my 30th birthday! The venue was great (check if the lift is working as the stairs are not ideal) the bar staff were lovely, the pizzas we had were great got lots of compliments. I can’t comment on the rooms as we didn’t stay there but overall a good venue! We had a great time. The only thing I would say is we had decorations up and I asked if I could come in the morning to clear. I was told no and to do it then which was fine, but the bouncers were repeatedly shouting and telling us to leave not giving us a chance to collect everything. It just felt a stressful end but otherwise overall we were happy with the venue and service and food!
