had a lovely time, mick was great, really chatty and friendly, the room was lovely and clean and the bed was fantastic, the bed linen was crisp and clean, there was tea and coffee making facilities in the room which was really handy and the spa bath was brilliant, mick had lots of local information for us and it seemed nothing was to much trouble, the only things that we felt let this otherwise wonderful place down, was the very small TV in the room, my husband couldn't see the footie score, the toilet made an awful groaning noise when you flushed it and the towels available were limited, especially as we wanted to use the spa several times during our stay, breakfast was lovely, we didn't mind filing out our order the night before, however I asked for the continental breakfast and porridge, as I didn't really want cereal, the porridge was really creamy, but a little on the cold side, all I was then offered was some toast, so not sure what's continental about that, unless I didn't understand it clearly, also the toast was very limited and the butter was two tiny skinny sticks, not sure why a small bowl of butter is not just put on the table, my husbands breakfast was cooked really well, there just wasn't enough of it, 1 sausage, no beans or black pudding !!!!!! whilst the food was of excellent quality, we felt it was stingy which was a shame, apart from that the friendliness and the cleanliness was second to none, so thank you guys.
