A step back into the seventies
The outside of the hotel lulls you into a false sense of security as it looks really quite nice.
I couldn't fault the polite and friendly lady on reception either, then it started to go downhill, firstly I was charged £5.00 to park my car. The lady then asked if I would be eating in the restaurant and that I would need to book a table. After looking at the set menu and the table d'hote menu (a total of four choices) I decided to give it a miss. Then came the room. It was like a blast from the past, a big alarm clock / radio stuck on the wall with a black wire running up to it with large white cable pins. Pine effect veneer wardrobes and dresser. I then sat on the bed and thought I had broken my pelvis, the mattress being so thin. Then came the bathroom. I think I remember my parents having the same bath suite fitted in 1976. No shower, a not so clean rubber bath mat and no soap or shower gel provided. Breakfast was good although I had to share a table. I do think people should be told that this hotel is mainly for senior citizens coaching holidays (3 coachloads ) when I visited just not good value for my money.
Excellent short break
After getting accommodation at such a reasonable rate we were not expecting too much.
How wrong were we. Receptionist was friendly and welcoming, the room was basic but clean, breakfast was excellent waiters/waitress were great. Would definitely stay again
