i recently stayed here with a group off about 23 girls on a hen weeken, myself and the hen shared a room which was huge and had a corner bath in the en-suite bathroom the room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable, only good comments i have about this hotel. Everything seemed ok as we arrived we thought we were just being asked to all wait in the bar area until all our keys for rooms were sorted how wrong were we. Fran started to give us a speach about being allowed to walk around in our pjs as its girls only which is fine but her husband was always around so not girls only really !!!!!!!, she then asked us if we were on the pull and told us if we were then we must go to the other hotel we explained thats not what we were there for as were all either married or attached and even if we were on the pull not her business really is it., we all commented on how we felt like school children on a trip. Weird that they wait up 4 u and a hotel that doesnt give u a choice of full english or continental i have never came across it before. We were also told it was forbiden to take our keys out with us they said for our safety REAL REASON they go into your rooms when your not in, on our first night we returned about 2.30 i asked for the bottles of larger that fran had kindly stored in her fridge for us (as the hotel bar wasnt licenced) she waved her finger at me i thought she wanted me to follow her to the fridge she led me to the room i was staying in and showed me the lock was broken it didnt occur to me that night as i was a little bit drunk but the next morning one of our party came to our room and told us they had been asked to cover the cost of the lock as fran didnt want to upset the hen i suddenly wondered how did fran know the lock was broke, when we left for our night out we locked the door with the key and handed it in as instructed but when she showed me the lock was broke the key wouldnt lock the door, as we later found out fran lets herself into the rooms when people go out for what reason im not sure not an experience i will be in a hurry to repeat. If you dont mind being subjected to rudness or your privacy being invaded then THIS IS THE HOTEL FOR YOU
