You pass by some gate posts down a tarmac drive then bang; the tarmac ends and you are driving on a rutted potholed track thinly disguised with stone chippings. Main entrance closed during part of our stay; had to use a side door into a scruffy corridor strewn with wind-blown leaves. Not a good first impreesion. Decor and furnishings of the hotel need improvement but I gather they are working on that. Bedroom just OK but (1) biscuits not replaced, (2) a box of tissues would have been appreciated, (3) as would some bottled water in the hot weather, (4) the shower head was fixed and was only at shoulder height so couldn't stand under it, and (5) no light over the bathroom mirror so, if needing bathroom during the night, had to turn on main bathroom light which immediately started up a noisy fan.
Food good but if you are on DB&B rates, there's a very limited menu unless you pay a supplement. Staff friendly and generally helpful so this somewhat compensated for the somewhat run-down feeling of the hotel. Hotel situation and grounds pleasant. Overall just about deserves 3 stars but facilities need improving.
