You get what you pay for here. Check-in was rushed . The room was of good size. The blankets (no duvet or top sheet) clearly had big stains on it. The lightshades were broken and the room was dated. The bathroom is in need of replacement however it was reasonably clean. No cuttlery, wine glasses etc.The walls are not insulated & the noise from other guests plus the road traffic was terrible! The remote control for the TV had clearly not been working for sometime. The brittle sellotape on the remote gave that away. The tv was extremely old & reception was very poor.
We choose to eat in at their restaurant. You seat yourself & order your meal at the bar (we discovered after not being attended too). After choice number 3, I managed to get something that was on the menu. The fettucine had wonderful flavours but nearing the bottom of the bowl there was just melted butter seperating from the sauce. The sirloin steak was very tender & juicy. The staff were polite. However I felt like I was "the hotel inspector", all night the boss kept coming out of the kitchen & adding what had been sold. The drinks were all removed from the bar & calculated. The tableclothes have paper over them, this gets turned over & used again. I discovered at breakfast that they hadn't even bothered to remove the crumbs! They were left on the cloth & paper over the top. Breakfast was very average & once again the butter shone through, this time in the scrambled eggs!We had to ask for cuttlery & the meals were handed to us by the boss wearing his padded ski jacket.There was no atmosphere! Overall the restaurant is very tired & in need of some serious attention including the way it is run!The restaurant looks like it is in serious trouble.We would definitely not go back!
