The room was nice, very large but also very cold. I put the radiator up to full but it was still cold in the morning. I even lifted the curtain onto the window ledge so the heat could actually get out into the room, but still it was pretty cold in the room all night (it wasn't exactly freezing out either, about 5 to 8 degrees I guess) Ok a minor moan I know but still... The staff are first class, really very nice, professional and obviously take pride in their work which is pleasant to be around. My main annoyance with this hotel is really only one thing, and that is the price of food and drink. Please do not get me wrong, the food is really, really good but unless Gorden Ramsey was helping out Jamie Oliver tucked away out the back I think it was just to much money. I think this is also why there are no locals in the bar, which is a shame as when I stay somewhere like this I like to get that local feeling, especially if I was on a weekend break. Anyway, breakfast is great room is clean and staff are lovely so if you are in the area give it a go.... But then there is nothing else for a fair few miles so you may not have a choice!..... Again, maybe why the prices are high in the bar?
Message to the owner, get the locals back in... it creates atmosphere!
