As my wife caustically commented, this hotel was designed by a man. No mirror in the room anywhere near an electric socket for the hair drier. That apart our room (311) was well appointed for the price (£50 with breakfast via booking.com) including what seemed to be a 40" LCD TV. OK this twin room was on the small side, but it was spotlessly clean, had a very comfortable feel to it and was reasonably quiet as it overlooked the hotel's small (5 car max), free car park accessed via a lane to the rear of the hotel. As it was full (6 cars!) we parked in a street close by, the hotel providing a ticket to cover 0800-1400 for £2. A previous commentator was probably unlucky with Reception, ours was extremely warm and welcoming and, as the hotel's restaurant was closed, she recommended some local eateries.One attracted a discount on production of room card but was unfortunately out of action on the night. The highlight for us was the breakfast. A warm welcome and good choice of hot or cold buffet, including four choices for eggs, the best porridge my wife has tasted from a hotel, ever, and deliciously crumbly West Coast black pudding. And to round it off, even as the time was past 0930, when breakfast finishes?, an invitation for more tea or coffee. We'll be back.
