We booked into this Hotel as we traveled from Scotland to visit family in the area, we have stayed before and enjoyed our time there. This time it seemed to have changed. it is in deed of a face-lift as the decor is very tired looking.
The staff were very pleasant made us very welcome, although at reception there was a big thing made about booking it through a third party and where was our voucher ??? we printed off what we were advised to do before we left home and gave it to the receptionist who seemed to scrutinize it for what seemed like ages...anyway we got to our room and although it was clean I was slightly disappointed, It was very small and cramped. there was no Iron/board in the room and the toilet door kept sticking. My partner pointed out that it was a room at bargain price £62 including breakfast but to me its a bargain if your getting the norm at a lower price I felt we were put in the staff quarters, but as i said it was clean so no worries. I was awoken at 5 am with the sun pouring through the thin curtains well that was me up i cant understand why some Hotels cant use blackout blinds/curtains it would make all the difference especially during the summer months the curtains used were lined but that does not constitute black out material. The breakfast was shocking, it was self serve which im fine with, the coffee was in large thermos jugs and was lukewarm, the toast was already toasted and had been sat under heat lamps as was the fried egg it was like rubber so I couldn't eat it, I was very disappointed as as an ex smoker i awake to look forward to a great tasty breakfast lol...alas this was not to be.
We wont stay there again as there are a few other hotels in the area that we have used before..you don't always get that bargain at the end of the day.
