I stayed here with my 11 year old couple of weeks ago, two nights mid week. We had a twin room with a special offer so it was reasonably good value for bed and breakfast.
Our room was one of the older , smaller rooms they must reserve for their specials, some we saw are much more modern and larger. Ours was warm and comfortable enough but a bit tight with desk, table and chair etc.
the tv was a tiny portable, despite the room brochure giving advice about the channels, none of these corresponded accordingly and 6 of them were not available or duplicated. The remote control did not work. The shower was poor, water not particularly hot and no power in it. Basic shampoo and gel, no hair conditioner etc. the and coffee facilities provided for just one cup each a day, all seemed to be bare minimum which I think is out of character with a hotel which claims to be four star. No fridge but use of a hair dryer and ironing board in the room. It is the little details which make the difference.
Each night I was awoken by a loud and incessant mechanical noise above my head which sounded like a boiler or something. This could not be explained by the staff.
On the plus side,the staff were pleasant, all local and mature enough to be in the hospitality trade.
Breakfast was excellent on choice and quantity.
They also allowed my son to use the pool in the morning even though this was not part of the allocated time, as it was quiet.
