Lovely breakfast and pleasant staff.We were only there for one night and didn't get to see much of our surroundings, but it seemed very nice and in a good location. I'd use it again if we were in the neighbourhood.
Not very impressed at having to wait half-an-hour to gain admittance. We had notified the hotel that we would be arriving late and phoned the number on the door on arrival.
We had a big room and the bathroom was great with the nice fancy shower and jakuzzi.
We got lost on the way to the hotel.
(1) Very nice room and bathroom. Very comfortable bed. (2) Fantastic location out of the main town but only 5 minutes out by car.
(1). Only a basic evening meal menu provided on Monday and Tuesday - Full range menu provided all other nights. This unfortunately corresponded to our stay but this was not mentioned at the time of booking. (2). The main wireless network had apparently failed and it had been temporarily replaced by their daughters modem (I'm not sure about the dynamics of this), however, this "temporary" network was very, very weak and I could only access it by setting up right next to the kitchen wall in the restaurant. There was no coverage elsewhere.
Relaxing atmosphere, with comfortable room and excellent food in the dining room. Good choice of food well presented.
I personally would have liked the option of grapefruit or any fruit for breakfast.
central for touring
Easy to find. Welcoming and helpful staff. Quiet location. Nicely decor. Good shower over bath. Good breakfast.
Very Small room (twin room also had bunkbeds tucked in) with small windows which made it dark and cramped. Only one bedside lamp. Although shower was great, height and angle wasn't adjustable as it was a fixed overhead, 'rainstorm' type which meant getting hair wet whether wanted to or not!
Service, food, hospitality excellent.
Shower in room was faulty - reported to staff. Exterior signage to hotel is impossible to see at night!
Quiet, clean, pleasant surroundings, good breakfast, nice helpful staff.
None - apart from no evening meals Mon - Thurs.
Clean, Impressive condition of the staircase and the function room, and the restaurant.
If you are going to be a bit fussy, perhaps the room's lighting was a bit dim, but I rarely complain.
Quiet location,comfortable bed and very nice breakfast. The staff were friendly.
On arrival front door was locked and there was nobody to greet us. There was a couple of phone numbers to ring for someone to come. We tried but were unable to get network coverage. This I thought was inconvenient.It was only when another couple arrived, who were able to phone that this was resolved. While we were waiting we had time to notice that there were cobwebs around the front door and the windows.
