Having stayed here 2 years ago (in a very old fashioned room ) I was delighted to see here that management started to refurbish rooms in Sept 2010. With that in mind I booked for the second time. This time I got the same room. No refurb here!! Well not in this room anyway! The room has granny's flowery curtains, and one of the single beds has springs that creak like there's no tomorrow and dated furniture. The mattress did not make for a good night's sleep. I can only think that all other rooms in the hotel were full and that i had to be given this room. Bathroom was a good size and was well equiped. The room was a real pity because the rest of the stay was very good.
Great service in the bar from cheery staff. Bar food was more than adaquate. Since my last stay the hotel has made major improvements to the breakfast room and breakfast menu. In fact the choice fro breakfast was super. V good coffee too.
