Stayed overnight on a B&B booking on Saturday 13 April 2013. On arrival booked in with no problems by a very helpful receptionist . Managed to get the car parked at the rear (very limited spaces) We were given two rooms which were on the second floor (205 and 206). Both rooms on entering smelt musty as though they had not been aired for ages. Both rooms were very "tired" looking and dark furniture made the room look even more depressing
.Walls could do with a lick of paint. Old sash windows which were filthy shook and rattled all night with the wind. Bed linen was spotles and the bed was comfortable.
Bathroom was clean but needed a good re-fit.
The hotel is in a great location for the town and all routes if your touring about.
Every member of staff we met were so polite and helpful.
The breakfast was buffet style and the selection on offer was fantastic and catered for all tastes, again the restaurant staff were great.
I had looked at previous reviews and its obvious that the contributers were not given the rooms we were in.
