This was a two night pre booked stay for a local wedding. The accommodation was very good clean and spacious. The bathroom lacked any toiletries except some liquid soap for the wash basin and we had to dash out on the morning of the wedding to buy shower gel and shampoo.
Lovely countryside view to the rear.
Wifi just about worked but was intermittent
We ate in the restaurant on the evening of our arrival. Clearly the bar which was very busy is a popular venue with locals as well as hotel guests. The early evening special menu attracted a great number of diners to the large restaurant which provided simple food in large portions. Certainly not a Gastro pub the food was not great with sauces in sachets with messy tear off corners. A limited wine selection was available at the bar. The staff could not have been more friendly but seem to have been given huge tasks to achieve with one chambermaid who served breakfast having to service ten rooms between 10.00am and midday later to serve lunch. Despite this she managed to be incredibly attentive and smiled endlessly.
Breakfast very indifferent. Bacon cooked some time before service and plates very oily, once again with sauces in sachets and miniscule packs of butter and of course preserves served in those awful plastic tubs that can cut you while you struggle to tear off the top foil without spraying the contents on fellow guests.
Pricing was OK but the price per room charged was not in line with that advertised on the web. I thought that £75 per room was probably too high for this standard of accommodation.
Overall view, very half hearted. They have the tools but just don't get there.
