This place has had a refurb in the last year or so and the interior seems modern but retains much of the quirkyness you expect from an old establishment. My room was inside the main building and was on the small side yet clean and warm (A little too warm) It's not really set up for business people, the rooms have no desks, poor internet access and very limited parking. I had to park 200 yards up the road only to find out later that some of the meagre parking spaces had been taken up by the hotel's staff.
The bar was lively and had a good range of real ale. The restaraunt was very good with a quality selection of dishes as well as competent and attentive staff. I had the monkfish and tiger prawn curry which I would recommend.
Some of the staff appear to be new and will take some more experience to provide an excellent service. I feel this hotel will improve with time and I willm use it again.
