If you are really desperate then stay here!
the rooms were very basic, dark, gloomy and stuffy - exactly what you don't want after a 600 mile journey.
Less than welcoming at reception- indifferent at best.
It's true the setting and location looked great but you need to take out 2nd mortgage to eat at the restaurant - there's nothing else for about 5 miles.
In fairness when we cancelled the next 2 nights they didn't charge us -as they could have done. Real shame as this could be a fantastic place with a bit of thought and sensitivity.
