Originally booked here for 2 nights but having been given an apartment that smelled of damp we complained and were given a. "Comfort" room but decided to move on the next morning. The hotel was probably a good hotel about 15 to 20 years ago but now it's a crumbling, unkempt and dated establishment with an eclectic collection of rooms with no real flow.
The dining room in particular was dirty and doesn't seem to have been dusted for a long time. Plant boxes used in there were almost triffid like and we saw at least 3 tables with couples having about a third of their tables being occupied by overhanging plants.
There was no bar as such but the largest outdoor, plastic covered , seating area with no real use apart from it being used as a smoking area.
The hotel did have two saving graces, the evening meal was good albeit pricey and if as much attention was paid to the upkeep of the hotel as that of the garden ( it was beautiful ) they would have an excellent hotel.
Why would you want to see the owner at breakfast cooking bacon and omelette in the kitchen in his suit? Unhygienic ? Does he have a food hygiene certificate? That did it for us! Don't waste your hard earned
cash! Certainly don't be tempted by the fitness suite! It was a joke.
