I am sure at some point this was a really nice hotel, it is in need of a complete referb, and I am sure it could be brought up to a really good standard with a good injection of cash, it can be very difficult when you have stayed in Hotels that have been kept up to date and have flat screen Tv`s (old style portable TV) and modern bathrooms not to be judgmental, if you are lucky and get a room to the front of the Hotel the views are really good we were at the back and there isn't a view as such, I would advise take it steady going down the drive to the hotel as the potholes nearly outnumber the rabbits running around, (picture a scene from water ship down) we only stayed for the one night and to be honest it was enough our room did not have a shower and I know that's not the end of the world but it is something you expect these days in a Hotel room there wasn't even a had held shower attached to the taps, the waitress we had I have to say was very pleasant, the breakfast was the only meal we had in the hotel but it was nice and hot. I don't want to sound to continuously negative but Its lack of being kept up to date really does sadly let it down and that is a shame.
