I can only apologise for your terrible inconvenience I believe you were told the only room left was one of the last waiting to be redecorated that's why you were given the discount and you took the room knowing that to be the case no one could possibly have known a couple with two small children were going to row...

It was a good night's sleep. The room was sunny and spacious. We only missed a small fridge for our food and drinks. There was a kettle and tea/coffee provided,which was really nice and thoughtful. They don't provide breakfast and haven't got their own parking but the owner was kind enough to suggest where to get breakfast and where to... More

First of all, I booked this place for 5 nights with my partner, asked for a standard double room and was told we'd be put in one of the newly refurbished suites. Paid up front (don't usually have a problem with this) However, soon after climbing the dangerously steep stairs to then top floor, we were greeted to our room... More

Upon arrival at 10:30pm the bar was closed giving the impression the hotel was too. The welcome was warm but once we were given the key we were asked if we had payed and... More
