    It had great sized family rooms, but they are in need of a bit of TLC, just looking a little old.

    We had breakfast included which was fine, just a little odd in a huge old dining room without any staff. Breakfast room could do with a spruce up to make it more appealing. We felt like we were dining in a storage room. It would have been a fantastic hotel in its time, just needs a bit of money spent on it.

    The gardens are now starting to look loved and the new renovated bathrooms are awesome great tiling job much better than the old ones.

    Hair dryer not clean and covered in dust fridge was not very cold and was dirty and broken in several areas you couldn’t use the door shelf as it was broken and a big piece of the plastic on the inside of fridge was broken off. Time for some new mattresses as you could feel the springs and the blankets were old style scratchie material.

    Did not take up the free breakfast. Main room and bathroom are huge. Comfortable bed. Excellent location. No road noise. Friendly staff.

    Exhaust fan in the bathroom was not working. Noticed that the front and back doors rattled. Needed to insert folded pieces of paper in the door jams to hold them tight.
