The room we stayed in was lovely and had great views. Staff were helpful and even managed to find us a taxi in the snow!
Breakfast felt a bit overpriced
There was a strong smell off either damp or drains in the room. The hotel is aware of this because they use over powering air freshners in the room, and they acknowledged it, when asked. It's a shame as everything else is good. It will prevent me from returning.
Excellent three day break
Good position friendly welcome small room dated bathroom thin walls. Does what iit sayt
That we were upgraded from standard to four poster room, that the staff are naturally friendly, food superb n very comfy facilities.
Recently redecorated room, comfortable beds and pillows, very good food available in the bar/restaurant, good value for money.
Location of the hotel was excellent and the views lovely. Staff were extremely helpful, including the restaurant. Rooms were pleasantly decorated, beds were comfy.
Corner shower hard to figure out how to work it without getting wet. One of the 2 rooms booked smelt of paint, but we were offered to change rooms.
