We stayed in a twin bedded room, en-suite. The room was spacious and although the decor is a little tired, the beds were comfortable and the room clean. There is a small TV and the hotel has free wi-fi. The bathroom was as clean as the old tiles would allow; the shower easy to use, although definitely waiting for a re-furb. However, we did not stay in the hotel to admire the decor!
Breakfast was excellent. Freshly cooked and served on a hot plate, so it didn't go cold quickly. We had two evening meals there, including a late Sunday lunch. I had cod loin, which was beautifully presented and cooked. Very good value for money.
The car park is situated in the rear entrance to the hotel and is a little small. Some people just come to eat at the hotel. If the car park is full, it is possible to park on the road, but you need to read the restriction signs. Once the diners have left, you can move your car into the car park.
The hotel has a lovely atmosphere and we would definitely stay there again, despite the out-dated decor. Our stay has put us off "chain" hotels, which lack character and flexibility.
