We found this represented very reasonable value for money. Everything is quite basic but within that category, the rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, the staff friendly (with the notably exception of our greeting when we arrived on Sunday evening, which would have benefitted greatly from a smile) and the food well cooked.

First impressions were good; the friendly receptionist unhesitatingly changed our room from one with just a shower to one with a bath; and the bar staff when we went for an afternoon G&T were equally friendly. However, the TV in the new room was unusable - presumably because of poor signal strength in that locality, an active (i.e. amplified) indoor... More

My bath had brown sludge running out of the taps. I was told a plumber had been working in the room! The single bed had a 13tog double quilt on it in the summer. The carpet was stained. The lock didn't work properly. Couldn't get a 2nd cup of coffee at breakfast as no staff in sight. No staff when... More

Friendly and welcoming staff. Good non greasy cooked breakfast. Room small but nicely decorated. Shower didn't work properly, shower door was broken and bathroom door didn't shut. Evening meal was nice but basic. Thought it was expensive for what you got, and no offer of discount or refund for the problems with the bathroom. We were told that the room... More

Booked a family room which was described as having 1 double and 2 single beds.However, on arrival were given keys to a dingy chalet type room in a separate building at the back of the hotel with 1 double and bunk beds squeezed in. The paint was yellowing,... More
