Wow....this hotel had fantastically friendly staff, clean room, new bathroom- well except the ceiling ! A relic frm the 70's patterned carpets throughout, kitsch Christmas decorations which included a snowing tree with the snow collecting in an umbrella that the tree stood in! Welcome was lovely the lady in reception genuinely friendly, this you don't see often so I really want to stress how friendly and helpful the staff were. Our room was in the Coach house across fro the main building, to be brutally honest more council house looking... Room was cold when we arrived we called down and they over rode the central heating to come on earlier. The room was basically furished smallish double bed very comfortable tho, one step up from ikea small table and 2 chairs, wall mounted flat screen. One of the lamps was hanging off the wall by the bed. Bathroom nice big bath for a hotel! New white suite new tiled floor, very cold on the floor tho, infact whole bathroom cold, nowhere for toiletries just a tiny glass shelf, even my partner commented on the lack of space and for a guy with minimal stuff to comment it must be bad! Shame they didn't redecorate the bathroom ie new ceiling and painted wall especially around the new fittings !
Had a average meal, not a fan of sauces in packets when not at the service station!
We had booked a room for a training event, room only which meant no water! A bit cheeky if you ask me as we had 50 extra customers for the hotel who brought teas, coffee and around half brought lunch there too so a boost to their sales but still no tap water....
We hire rooms all over the country and have never been charged for the use of a screen, we brought our own projector too! When we commented on such they waived the charge this time!
More like a visit to an old aunts house with the benefit of free. Wifi thoughout the hotel which meant I could work and watch my sky go on iPad in the evening! Would I return? Not willinginly but not avoid at all costs.
