Abit isolated - no other options for food apart from hotel bar which was poor and over priced

8/10 Very good

The hotel is convenient off the A12 yet far enough away you don't hear traffic noise. Decent room and bathroom, modern and clean and the rate included a better than average breakfast in the bar on-site. The only drawback is they don't offer family rooms with two double beds, just a bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed is pretty small and VERY uncomfortable, you can feel a bar in the middle of your back all night. Might be ok for very little kids but it does not make for a good night's sleep for someone bigger.

2/10 Poor

Our stay was hard as when booking the ages of our children haven’t been taken into consideration and they had to share a bed. I don’t know why we’re not informed of this prior to our stay

6/10 Good

Hotel was difficult to find, their postcode was not recognised on the car Sat Nav, and it’s quite hidden with no big signs of the hotel. Sofa bed and double bed was very uncomfortable. Room was clean and tidy and the overall service from the staff was good.
