Arguments in the corridor overnight and no hot water for a shower in the morning.

Great room, restaurant could do with some work

The rooms were excellent - clean and tidy and warm.

The public areas upstairs were rather shabby and in need of a bit of a decorate. Dinner was OK but my portion of curry was rather small and there were no potatoes with the salmon ordered by my colleague even though they were shown on the menu. The Sticky Toffee Pudding turned out to be Treacle/Golden Syrup Pudding. The Cheese and Biscuits were good. The full English Breakfast was OK but the Continental Breakfast was cereal and toast (cheap bread). In my opinion Continental Breakfast should have croissants as a minimum.
