No-where near worth the price paid
The real pity, on arriving at the hotel, is that we drove onto the front carpark and my wife commented that it looked like Fawlty Towers.
If we had seen the back of the hotel first our mood may have been a little different because the dining room was open and bright; looking onto the garden. However as we entered the front door, we glanced to the side and saw what looked like an abandoned function room. This room gave us a clue to the rest of the hotel. At the bar/reception we were greeted by a guest stood in just a pair of shorts and nothing else talking to a man behind the bar who we assumed was the proprietor, though he never introduced himself. He was indeed the proprietor and, although not unfriendly, he didn't really engage with us. His manner added to our growing feelings towards the hotel....one of slow decay and neglect. The room, although not dirty, was like something from the 70's. Woodchip and cheap furniture was only saved by the comfort of the bed. The fact that the proprietor had to go and get us some cups and another towel seemed a little un-professional as did the fact that there was no welcome pack, local information, magazines or pamfhlets. The bathroom was clean though the toilet flush was very loose and there wasn't even a cup for the toothbrushes. it wasn't a hotel room that you would have felt like stopping in if it was pouring outside. In the morning the breakfast was really the last straw. Although well cooked, there was no menu, no choice, no fruit, no yoghurt, in fact nothing except sausage, bacon, egg, tomatoes and mushrooms......not really the sort of offerings that you would expect at £95 per night. I would hope to see the cereals etc laid out with fruit and other choices but there was absolutely nothing. The menu was in the head of the proprietor only and confirmed our feelings that the owners had little interest in what they were doing. For the same price we have sampled other local hostelries and found them to be of a far superior standard. Our stay would have been cut short had we been stopping for more than one night.
