Stayed here for two nights after booking here very late on a whim.
We had room 5 in the main building which is a nice double room. The artwork on the wall needed a good dust though. Bed was very comfy but the pillows were rubbish.
Beware the scary toilet which makes very loud strange noises when flushed & at other random intervals - it made us both jump out of our skin every time!
Large flat screen tv is good but you have to go through a channel search every time it's turned on which gets a bit annoying.
Dressing table is in a dark corner which is no good for doing your make up.
Breakfast isn't bad but being served only until 9.30am & check out by 10am makes the mornings rushed.
We ate in the restaurant on the Saturday night it was a very pleasant meal however, I ordered off the specials board & was told the meal came with veg so I ordered some chips to go with it. When my meal arrived it actually came with veg & mash so I'd ordered the chips for no reason. Also it's worth noting that no food is served beyond 6pm on a Sunday, even for those staying at the hotel.
Plus points are free parking & great location a very short stroll to the castle & gardens & into the centre of the town. Also very close to the famous Barter Books.
Staff were all nice & polite.
