Great for a relaxing break

Hotel on main road but had no problems with traffic noise, plenty of parking at the hotel. Room large and clean. Food excellent, nice small bar and large lounge you can take your drinks into. Pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room area clean did say in hotel info should get gown and slipper all we got was a towel each but that's not a complaint just an observation. We had a massage in the spa which was excellent DONOT stay without using the spa facilities. The staff were brilliant efficient and friendly. Would definitely stay here again.


A good base for a golf party

Stayed here in early Sept with 19 golfers, booked by White Rose Golf Breaks. The location is perfect for several golf courses in the area. Rooms were more than adequate and the pool and spa very welcome after a days golf. Breakfast was good. We didn't eat in the restaurant but it's location 5 mins from the town centre meant we were in easy reach of plenty of eating houses and pubs. Plenty of free parking too.


Lovely hotel with easy access to town and ample parking

I generally like Best Western hotels and this was no exception. Clean and comfortable, fantastic breakfast, swimming pool and a quiet relaxing lounge area. The free WiFi worked well and all the staff we met were most helpfull. This hotel is ideal for touring the area and it is only a five minute walk into the town centre.
