Recently stayed here for 2 nights, the room was clean enough but the bed was just a metal frame camp bed pushed against a wall, no headboard.
The room had got a conservatory that opened on to some decking that was very wobbly and unstable, across the decking was the boiler room that was quite noisy, not loud enough to keep you awake but loud enough to notice all the time droning on in the background. Breakfast was very unimaginative, fry up or fry up the choice is yours! No yoghurt or Fruit, No fish or vegetarian option, jam and marmalade came in those sealed plastic pots that you get in service stations. The waitress, in jeans and a hoody, didnt know where the sausages or bacon were from, being a farmer i think traceability is very important. I wouldnt rush back, it served a purpose - no more. I dont think they can call themselves a hotel.
