My husband and I stayed for one night on August 4th. We were allocated a spacious but 70s style decor room482 but it was nevertheless quiet at night. As the sash windows only open 2 inches and there's no air on it was very hot! Large bathroom with separate shower and bath in. Creaky floorboards everywhere. No atmosphere in lounge or bar area. We went to see the swimming pools area and saw a notice on the door stating the outdoor pool would be closed on 5th as scaffolding was being erected. Not sure who's brilliant idea that was? Surely that should have been done pre season not in the middle of it! Breakfast, sadly, is totally self catering. You're not even offered tea or coffee from a jug and have to queue up at one machine-quite interesting when the hotel is as busy as it was! I spent my time getting up to go to the food area instead of having a leisurely breakfast. Hotel is in a great location and has free parking but overall it needs a massive refurbishment
