Staff friendly and efficient. Decor and furnishings need updating. Our bedroom looked very old fashioned but did seem to have been refurbished. But the drapes and bedspread were very heavy and very dated. Absolutely fantastic bathroom. Very modern, bright and beautifully designed. But the hot water in the shower didn't actually get beyond tepid and, after being out in the cold outdoors all day, I really do want a hot shower! Also there is no light over the mirror and I found it difficult to see to put my make-up on at night. Similarly the mirror over the dressing table was unlit and too far away to be of any use! Breakfast just alright. Self-service and sufficient. Evening meal wasn't as delicious as the menu suggested. Rather disappointing on the whole. As there were only about 6 tables occupied there was little atmosphere and it was difficult to hold a private conversation. Swimming pool small and in a separate building. Even with 4 people using it it looked crowded. Lots of rooms with comfy sofas and chairs but many needed reupholstering and some appeared stained. Probably very tasteful when first decorated but sorely needs a revamp. Although there were fires burning to cheer the rooms the hotel was cold and we went to our room early rather than lingering in the bar as we felt chilly. I think that he g hotel would benefit from a total refurbishment. This may have already started as the bathroom suggests. Continue the modernisation and the hotel would be much more attractive and welcoming.
