We stayed for two nights and although we enjoyed our short break we were disappointed with this hotel. Having viewed the website before booking I felt confident this would be of superior quality, however the hotel is dated, tired and in need of a really good clean.
The proprietors were welcoming and friendly but although a non smoking hotel, there was an aroma of stale tobacco smoke in reception. The rooms we had were spacious and light but needed attention to detail, tops of wardrobes thick with dust and windows dirty with many cobwebs. Bathrooms were clean with complimentary toiletries. Breakfast was tasty and efficiently served by a very polite young man although we were not keen on the plastic teapot! The gardens have the potential to be lovely but look quite neglected and the outside of the hotel needs attention, even if just to remove grime and yet more cobwebs.
If you are looking for a good old fashioned/traditional B&B then this is the place for you but it didn't really meet our expectations.
