The hotel certainly had character but our stay was memorable for all the wrong reasons. The pillows on our bed, whilst in clean pillowslips, were dirty and smelled bad and the pillowshams and spare pillows were very dirty and I had to ask for replacements. They were not much better. The bed was tiny and the room incredibly hot. The bathroom smelled damp and fusty. Breakfast, which was described as "sumptuous" was very poor indeed with stale cornbread/muffin (sorry, not sure what it is called) and coffee like dishwater. Not even a greeting from the serving staff. The only saving grace was the cheery barman, Brian, who can mix a mean cocktail, and the steaks which were very good. This was the worst place we stayed in during our 3,000 mile trip.
