I was visiting for two nights to do a sponsored cycle in the area and booked late. Was told the hotel was full but received a phone call a few hours later to be told of a cancellation - happy days! I arrived late during atrocious weather and received a lovely welcome. My room was probably the furthest one from reception and was smallish but fine for one. The directions to it would have been easier with a sat-nav... (2nd night I got lost and was trying to enter the wrong room before I copped my mistake). I went on my cycle the next day and arrived back absolutely soaking wet. Luckily, the staff were very sympathetic and arranged for an extra heater for my room to enable me to dry my cycle gear. I had food in the bar the first night and my breakfast in the restaurant. Both were excellent and great portions. I'm going back in July '11 with family and if I'm looked after half as well I'll be a very happy man.
