This hotel is very nice with good location and great rooms and friendly staff. The room rate was great at only £47 for the night.
The only criticism I have for the hotel was the cooked breakfast. The sausages were like nothing I had ever tasted before. They were tasteless, chewy and had an awful texture. The scrambled eggs were no better. They were rubbery & tastless, even with brown sauce added.
It is such a shame that something that is so easy to get right is so wrong. I would happily have paid an extra £5 to get a decent cooked breakfast.
I asked at the kitchen if they would make me a poached egg only to be told that they do not keep any eggs on site. When I asked them to explain how they made the scrambled eggs without any eggs on site they told me that the scrambled egg came in powdered form!!!!
The rest of the breakfast was lovely so please try and change this part.
