Had to book this at last minute. We had a group booking and all the rooms were in desperate
need of refurbishment. The hotel had a musty smell everywhere and needs a good clean.
one room was very cold and we were told the heating will come on, it never did, so we had to swap rooms with our elderly parents so we had the cold room. As we stayed in October this is not good enough! Advised reception when checking out and didn't apologise, just made a note of it. Would not recommend the English breakfast, my son loves this usually, but left most of it, a first ever for him! Would not recommend this hotel. Spoilt a special occasion.
