We booked a couple of nights as a chill out stay using Tesco Clubcard vouchers so the B&B was free to us, perhaps a good job as we would have been less understanding if we had paid full price for it.
On the plus side the setting is very pleasant and the staff are very attentive. Rooms decent quality and size and, apart from having to take hair out of the bath plug hole to allow it to drain, the cleanliness was good.
Leisure facilities tired. The small pool is full if 4 people want to swim at the same time. A bit odd having to use your room key to gain access to the pool and even stranger was the need to leave the pool area to walk through the gym to the jacuzzi (OK but very small) and the sauna (good). The steam room was broken when we visited.
Car Park odd in that only half of it is tarmac, the other half quite rough. Downside for our party was the lack of any disabled spaces near to Reception. There were some by the Leisure Centre/Restaurant entrance but that was too far to start dragging cases when your back is shot.
Restaurant food quality good but service unbelievably slow and prices quite high - an hour and a half for two courses on a quiet Friday night is not impressive. We felt the food suffered from too many flavours on each dish - my wife ordered the salmon with cajun scallops to discover that they were set onto a pile of chorizo slices. Odd.
Breakfast the following morning took almost an hour so that is the norm (on the second morning there was a buffet breakfast and we were out in 25 minutes).
The only other oddity was the "would you like a paper?" traditional intro as we booked in to then discover that we had been charged for them as we booked out. A major problem? No, but one that grates when all the other items are added to it.
To sum up - nice location, good staff, lots of irritants - an odd mix.
