Tired and Dated Accommodation
Stayed a this hotel previously, so decided to visit again.
Big change. Hotel needs a total revamp, room ok bathroom cramped. Noisy dogs barking during the night and unable to get a bar snack during the evening, told the staff were too busy. Service poor, staff in dinning room did not know what they were doing.
Beautiful view from our room
Friendly and helpful receptionist.
Enjoyed bar meal of fish and chips with 15% off for early bird.Lovely fireside lounges to relax in. The bedroom had 2 small armchairs and a coffee table so we could sit with our tea and take in the stunning view. A very large comfy bed and cosy room added to our very pleasant stay in this quaint old hotel.
