We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of Dec. I wanted a weekend break as a birthday suprise for my husband. My initial reaction on driving up to the hotel was disappointment but i had read the reviews that said the outside was a bit tatty so i held back to see if the inside was better. It is a very tired hotel but clean and the staff on the front desk were friendly. Our room was clean and basic but unfortunately it was also freezing cold. On querying with the manager about the temperature it transpires that he doesnt have the heating on all day and only in certain parts of the hotel! We said we definitely would need the heating on and he did then turn it on but it was a good three or four hours later before it was a comfortable temperature - oh and there was no radiator in the bathroom at all and so that remained really cold all weekend - that sed the shower was the hottest I have every encountered in a hotel! The room could also have done with a couple of chairs and a small table as there was nowhere to hang coats and the dressing table was full with the kettle etc. The restauarant was closed at this time of year which wasn't mentioned on the website or on the phone when I booked which was irritating but the breakfast service was polite and the breakfast itself was nice but basic and the chef seemed incapable of doing a 'soft' egg even at special request.
All in all it was an adequate hotel for the money but I would not stay there again. We have family on the island who used to own a hotel and so I know we could have got a much better quality for the price we paid.
Overall a very disappointing stay.
