Just stayed the 1 night on a Groupon offer. The room was clean, nice bed and clean linen and towels, tea making facilities provided and of good quality. Bath nice and deep, over the bath shower a little short of space because of position of shower head but adequate, hotwater plentiful. Nice dining area and decent bar. Public toilets clean, new coat of paint wouldn't go amiss but otherwise v good. Staff polite and more than willing to help. Breakfast had plenty of variation and plentiful.Now for the iffy bits, OK maybe I'm being a bit picky but these are things that I wasn't happy about. Black mould in the grouting in the bathroom, sorry but there is no excuse for this, plenty of stuff on the market that shifts it with very little effort, otherwise a good dose of neat bleach and a scrubbing brush will do the job. The evening meal was just not up to what I expected. My partners starter was hot and cold in places....not good when the starter was Mussels, result he left most of it and did explain to staff why. The steaks were tasty but swamped by very well done chunky chips....less chips and a bit less cooked would have been far better. The puddings once again not qute right, cheesecake appeared more cream than cheese with not alot of taste. The apple pie would have been fab when first cooked, however microwaving pastry just makes it soft and rubbery, not even the custard made it edible. The bar when we were eating was quite busy and unfortunatley the language by a customer was punctuated with the F word far too loudly and often to be ignored, the bar staff should have asked the customer to tone it down or leave...I'm ex bar staff and if asked correctly most customers comply without any problems. Our room was above the bar and main exit, noise from the bar could be heard but not at an annoying level, however I suggest a soft close door closure be fitted to then Main door as the constant bang,bang when anyone entered or left was very annoying when trying to get some sleep. Street noise was a problem the night we were there, the local boy racers were directly opposite reving their engines and blasting their car horns at various intervals during the night.....not the hotels fault, but annoying to say the least. Could I also suggest that decent sausages but provided to accompany the rest of the good cooked breakfast, the paste type ones were tasteless, I'm sure most customers woildn't mind paying a little extra for a good sausage. One final thing....Parking....it's either round the back in the council pay and display or if you are lucky in one of the free bays close to the hotel, however I would imagine in summer there would be next to no chance of getting one of those. There is a drop off point, but after that you would be hunting to find a free car parking space or paying for the council run ones.
