there were no complaints regarding staff as everyone was very friendly and helpfull. Yes most of the staff are foreign but they are students over in this country for a few months learning English.
If you are looking for 4/5 star accomodation then this is not for you!!the rooms are outdated and reminded me of B&B in seaside resorts in the 70's and 80's. I think they got the pictures on the walls from a car boot sale!!!!
There was very little hot running water (room 3)and the room we were in was above the kitchen and as previously stated by someone earlier very noisey.
The actual layout of clean sheets/towels and refreshment's were spot on no complaint there.
The breakfast area was very clean and airy and the waiter very friendly. The food was quality, cooked to a good standard.
The company that run this Hotel need to look at the room problem, it would not take a lot of thought to change the decor and put more modern furnishings in the rooms.
I would recommend this pub but only for the service you got ...breakfast area and bar but not the bedrooms.
