Good to know:

Between 2nd January, 2018 and the middle of February the hotel will be undergoing a refurbishment so won’t be able to offer a full dining service.

The restaurant won’t be able to serve evening meals or hot breakfast items, but a limited continental selection will be available. This will include cereals, pastries and fruit, as well as juice and coffee.

The bar will still be serving bottled beers, wines and spirits – draught beer won’t be available. There’s a pub next door that serves food, or you can arrange for takeaway to be delivered to the hotel.

When you arrive you’ll need to check in in one of the meeting rooms, where the reception area has moved to during the refurbishment.
