This 'hotel' is very old with a newish Indian restaurant as the main dining and bar area. The accommodation section is very dated and tired. The price quoted on the booking website did not include breakfast although this was not made clear when we booked for one night. When we arrived to check in, we were asked if we wanted to pay for breakfast. Not impressed. It was approx 4.95 for adults and 3.95 for kids. Then we went up to our family roomwith a double bed and a bunk bed for the 2 children. The metal bunk bed squeeked quite badly with any small movement so the children tried to fix it by stuffing the loose joints with tourist leaflets! Small improvement, but the mattresses were very lumpy with huge springs being easily felt through the thin coverings. The double bed wasn't much better either. The night was a hot and difficult one where none of us slept much as the heater was on all night and the problems highlighted above.
Then down for breakfast. I was hoping for a good cooked breakfast for the prices we paid but was very disappointed to be told there would not be any bacon on the full English as the owners were Muslim. I am not Muslim or even remotely religious so was very put out that the customer was not being catered for properly. The breakfast consisted of fried egg, mushrooms, a sausage (unknown meat!) a hash brown and some stir fried onions and peppers!!!! Very strange. Overall, it was ok but just not quite right.
This place was too basic and the standard just too low for us to really say it was worth the price. So glad we only had to stay one night.
