The room was average, but given that the hotel is not the newest around, that is what would be expected. Yes it looked out over the 'river' but at that time of the year it is more of a creek, not the hotel's problem. There is an outsiode decl, but there is no divider between rooms so you are not assured of privacy unless you close the curtains. The room was close to the restaurant and we noticed the noise from others, not good since we notice noise as we live in the countryside. There is no control over parking, so when there was a large private gathering, they used up all the parking and we had to park some distance away which was very inconvenient and unsettling with the thought of having a rental car parked in another street opening the potential for vandalism. To their credit after I complained they did advise me when a space came free and I was able to bring the car back and park in the grounds. My normal experience is that carparking is assigned to guest staying at the hotel/motel with casual visitors needing to find parking elsewhere.
Staff need some upskilling in the local attractions though, and we found things by driving around rather than any real direction from the staff.
