My travelling companion and I had a 5 day break (11th-15th November) at this hotel. The service, food and friendliness of the staff was excellent. Our stay however was marred by our accommodation. The central heating had only been switched on prior to our arrival so our rooms were bitterly cold and took hours to warm up. The decoration was abysmal and must have dated back to the 1950's (at least) ! The reception staff did their very best to change our rooms but all the alternative ones available in the hotel were larger and just as cold so we elected to stay put hoping the rooms we were given would soon warm up. We were supplied with blankets and extra pillows and by the middle of the night the single room did manage to feel cosy and warm. It will be interesting to see what improvements are made after the refurbishment due over the next few months. Despite the negative feedback about the decoration I would still return and even recommend this hotel but I would advise people to research in advance the room they are being allocated for their stay.
