Highly misleading website shows lush, private gardens surrounding large victorian house. In reality every spare inch of the grounds has been given over to 2 story flat roofed buildings, obviously designed in the 1970s. Exceptionally ugly, using unsympathetc materials (lots of concrete and painted metal). Parking a nightmare. Breakfast good but slow. Too few staff. Large comfortable bed let down by bedlinen a good 6 inches too small for the size of mattress. A shortage of lavatory paper in rooms and in conveniences in public areas. A dirty towel left on the floor to be replaced was put back on the towel rail, wet, over clean towels. Price charged at check out was £10 greater than that quoted at booking. Overall impression is that they are running on a financial shoe string. Wouldn't stay again. Would not recommend.
