This is a difficult review to write, if you are intending to stay here as part of a coach trip and to pay only £45 then you will probably be satisfied. However, if you are an independent traveller and trying to find somewhere to stay on spec then our advice would be to give this hotel a miss and drive on to another one in the area. Unless, that is, you are prepared to put up with very dodgy outdated décor, carpet that is torn and taped up, paintwork that is scuffed and damaged, glum, dark and spooky rooms, very squeaky floorboards, grand staircases that lead nowhere, mediocre to poor food, no toast at breakfast and a considerably bigger bill than £45. The hotel is run down (take the green swimming pool as an example) and is in desperate need of a full refurbishment and makeover. Even the wording of the hotel information booklet is terse, out-of-date and unfriendly eg no lost property department. When we arrived there were only a few rooms available and we plumped for a high-end expensive one, it was a mistake and that is our fault we should have got back in the car and driven on. The only saving grace of this establishment is the staff, all of whom are friendly and helpful - in what must be difficult circumstances for them.
