One night stay booking with laterooms

Staff were excellent, rooms were clean, breakfast was good.

Room was past the need to be refurbished and I would be embarrassed to have a guest stay here. Example was the bathroom tiles put up using staples, rusty fittings and corroded mirror. TV was also very poor. Yes we only paid £59.99 with laterooms but you would expect the same quality rooms that a full paying guest had that had booked in advance. Also we were not able to eat in for a evening meal. I feel we were treated as second class and would not want to book with laterooms or stay in this hotel again

I will finish to say the staff were more than helpful, friendly and kind.

Fantastic view

The view from our room was great, the hotel could do with a bit of updating but given its age and position is more than worth visiting, room was clean staff were friendly the breakfast could be improved but I am fussy (Beans/Hash browns are for Americans.Mushrooms/Black pudding for us Brits).All in all Great Value.

The on duty receptionist was very friendly and helpful although he did forget to tell us about the arrangement for checking if everyone was in and the doors would then be locked.

Fortunately read about it in another review. Agree with other reviewers that the hotel is jaded and in need of rejuvenation. Bedding and towels clean. The biggest shock and disappointment was the lack of a shower in both the single rooms I booked. If I had booked for more than one night and paid the full rate I would have been livid. Got a good price and the weather was brilliant so I thought of it as a Fawlty Towers experience and laughed it off.
