Booked this room on the day of arrival and was offered a rate of £40 including breakfast
Ample car parking front and rear
Reception was manned by at least two members of staff every time I came past which I think is very re-assuring for all guests.
Hotel generally was clean and tidy and well presented.
Bedroom was good, with a spacious bathroom and a decent shower - the latter is hard to find in hotels because of water pressures etc but a good shower is a necessity on a morning at 6-30am!
I booked a table for an evening meal, the bar had a good range of drinks and I had a Grolsch.
Menu was varied but not too much choice, which is good as it means you get better attention to detail because a chef can concentrate more on the 6-8 dishes he has to cook and prepare instead of 20+
Starter of cod fillet and then two fish fillets of the day with accompanyments - both were excellent.
Service - bow ties although smart were perhaps not required and gives an initial impression that it might be a bit posh, however the casual polite and talkative nature of the staff immediately alleviated any such aprehensions.
Good sleep in a good bed.
Breakfast was good. Nice selection of fruit and yoghurt, good coffee and a hearty breakfast which I couldnt finish due to it being generous.
Its not the Ritz, but its streets ahead of the hotel chains that dot the UK.
At £40 + evening meal you really cannot go wrong
