Good point: All the staff we came across were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, and they went out of their way to help and solve problems. I can't thank them enough.
However, the hotel itself was not so good. An unkempt garden area at the front gave a bad impression as we arrived, and one of the front windows (hopefully not a guest room!) was covered in bird poo.
Our room looked quite nice, but the bed had seen better days - the mattress was hard and uncomfortable. When I did get to sleep, I was woken frequently throughout the night by the headboard in the next room knocking the wall every time the occupant moved, and an uncurtained window above the door meant that there was light pouring in from the corridor all night. This all led to a very bad night’s sleep. The second night, we persuaded our neighbours to pull their bed away from the wall, and I asked for some more bedding to put on top of the mattress, and had a much better night.
The food wasn’t brilliant.
I am sorry to say that I wouldn’t recommend this hotel, and would not stay here again.
