We booked here for a night for the August bank holiday weekend to go away and chill out. Got a pretty average price so took it. When we arrived the reception was lovely and the staff were very friendly. So far so good. However when we went to our room I was gobsmacked. Old, OLD furniture, single glazed wooden window, electrical conduit running up the wall and a bathroom from the 70s. It felt like a prison cell. I was ready to get back in the car and go home again. We went back to reception where we explained that the room was not acceptable and we were not staying in it. They gave us a second room, which was slightly more modern, however again the bathroom was vile and the bathtub was actually yellow! I felt so let down, our relaxing romantic night away was ruined. Receptionist called to see if this room suited us and we told her no again. She moved some things around and we finally got a really lovely room at the door to the leisure centre and enjoyed the rest of our stay.
The food and staff were absolutely amazing and couldn't have been nicer, however due to the rooms there is no way I would go back. Hotel is in dire need of renovation.
