We stayed here on Sunday night, so the hotel was quite empty and quiet, which was nice as we're light sleepers. The receptionist was lovely, very helpful as we didn't know the area, she advised what time to leave to get to where we needed to be to avoid traffic etc, booked us a taxi for our night out and greeted us when we got back.
The room was very large, very clean and the bed was king size & comfy. The TV had a good selection of channels to flick through before going to sleep. As a place to sleep, I couldn't fault it, however, as a place to have a cooked breakfast, I could not recommend it.
The continental was fine, all your usuals (although I prefer to get my marmite in the little tubs as it's a bit messy to spoon it from the jar on to the plate in front of the toaster).
We were told that as there were less than 30 guests in the hotel, breakfast would be cooked to order. I ordered, soft boiled egg, black pudding, crispy streaky bacon, sausage & mushrooms. When the plate arrived it looked good, but potato rostis had appeared as well, no bad thing. Then I tried to take the top off the egg and released it was very very hard boiled. The black pudding shattered when trying to cut in to it and the bacon was like cardboard. The sausage & mushrooms were nice though. Maybe I should've sent it back, but the waiter seemed to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
All that said, I wouldn't write it off, I know from other review that management do read these, so I hope I have been constructive in my criticism. I would definitely stay again & recommend it to others, it is cheaper than the alternatives in the area and really was a nice place to sleep, plus really handy location for getting anywhere you need to be in the area.
