We stayed in the Lodge at the hotel, which is still in the process of being refitted.
Our room, which also contained a bunk bed in a small room off of the main bedroom, was adequate in size, clean and well decorated.
You will need to be patient with the lift if you do not like walking up stairs, which creak like a "Nightingale Floor".
Breakfast had a good variety, with a plentiful supply of cooked food.
The bar was well staffed and comfortable and the prices didn't seem too steep.
