My husband and myself stayed for 2 nights while visiting relatives, and were very disappointed in the general standard of the place. The main part of the hotel is very old, a fact that has been mentioned in other reviews and that can't be helped, however our room was in the more modern building at the back, close to the car park. The first thing I noticed was that the staircase leading up to our room was very dirty, the carpet in need of a good clean and the paintwork also dirty. The room itself was dingy, dusty, and one of the windows didn't close properly (luckily the weather was mild and dry, otherwise this would have been more of a problem.) The bathroom smelled funny and had some standing water in the bath which I had to rinse away.The only good thing was that the room was nice and quiet, being away from the High Street, that is until Sunday morning when the church bells start ringing, on and on and on....they go on non stop for about half an hour!
On to the restaurant and bar, we had a few drinks in the bar, which were VERY expensive! A pint of lager and a small glass of wine was nearly £10!! We also had a meal in the restaurant which was very nice, a bit expensive, but no complaints overall.
One other thing I noticed was their apparent fettish for Pine Disinfectant! Towards the end of our meal in the restaurant we noticed a really strong smell of disinfectant coming from the kitchen, which was really off-putting. The next day we also noticed it in our bathroom after the maid had been in to clean our room in the morning. Nice to know they're doing some cleaning, but surely they could use something with a more attractive smell than this? It was hideous!
We didn't try breakfast after all - at £12 per person per day I thought it was very expensive and we had a very decent breakfast at Wetherspoon's for a fraction of the price.
