Great location, beautiful building and some lovely walks and gardens close by.
The negatives in my opinion - The en-suite in our large double room was very tiered, the dreaded black mould everywhere! The bed had seen better days and needs a light switch by the bed and not over by the entrance door? If you need to get up in the night, you can't see a thing and finding the light switches was a problem in unfamiliar surroundings.
Please note the public bar shuts at 10 pm and there is nowhere to drink with in walking distance! I'm talking about Friday and Saturday night!
As so many other hotels and bubs these days, the staff are all kids and lack people skills. Potential customers for the Carvery restaurant were queuing by the front door for long periods with out being seen to or acknowledged.
The food served in the Carvery was very poor, tasteless bland and I could not cut through my roast potatoes. In there defence I was the last customer of the night?
At breakfast time, you are better of getting there for first sitting. I arrived 40 mins in to breakfast time and although looked fab, it was way past it's serving up time in the hot 'Bay Mari's' !
No sign of any kitchen staff to get freshly cooked eggs etc. I hope the new owners address these area's, as it could make for a great venue. The way things are, I would not go back!
