It's a revisit. decided to have an overnight getaway with the family and thought of bringing my little one for a 'cold' experience so decided to pay this place a visit. the town itself has been refurbished. could see that the community made an effort to renovate the buildings and also parks around the place.
sadly, this little smokehouse, hasn't gotten much of the refurbishment that the township got. still nice and cosy with the tudor decors and such but the rooms, especially the furniture is a tad old. the surroundings and buildings itself hasn't gotten much maintenance in recent years and it really shows due to what nature throws at it. rusty swings (all 3 of them), some areas have over grown vegetation. broken side gate.
rooms are still decent and ok. super clean (like star-studed hotels) not really, relatively its the weather, its damp and when it rains it can get into the rooms and wets the carpets. there's also a musty smell in which clears when the air clears out with wide open windows. after being here about 3-4 times, i tend to notice the noise from the passing and honking cars (if you are staying in rooms facing the road) from the mainroad and it can get annoying when you are there just for total R&R. other than that, the toilets are still the same, clean floors with nice warm/hot strong showers. the typical complementary drinks and english breakfast. not to be missed...the excellent tea time scones.
would visit this place again but that depends on if they do take an effort to upkeep the place well. for the price you are paying vs what you get, doesn't really seem to be bang for your buck anymore.
