I tend not to believe everything I read on TripAdvisor prior to staying in hotels. Unfortunately on this occasion, everything was true if not worse!

Staff were fine. Bed a little lumpy, some dust behind the bed but truly...

TV in room far too small for the room. Cooked breakfast very poor (sausages burnt black and tasted of fish!) Many rooms are above the bar - could hear a lot of noise (and...

Was looking forward to our stay. Looks great from outside and person in the bar was very friendly. Once in the room it is very worn and could do with a lick of paint. And it was very dusty. The bathroom needed a deep clean and even a lick of paint. The bed I could feel every spring and did...
