Room was ok but wasn't prepared properly, we had to ask for another glass, coffee and milk and there was no hand soap. We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night, our waitress was Roxy who was lovely, we didn't bother with a starter but the main course took 50 mins to arrive, my husband had Gammon and chips and if you wanted peas, egg or pineapple with it it was £1.50 extra per item !! I had Ham and Leek pie which was tasty. The breakfast on the first morning was a shamble, we were asked if we wanted tea or coffee and what toast brown or white we chose brown, after a long wait we had to ask where our coffee was it was delivered to the table with white toast as they didn't have any brown bread left! It's a buffet breakfast but you have to order eggs to be cooked fresh, which we did, they were given to the wrong table so we had to ask again, by the time they came we just managed to select the other hot stuff from the buffet as they started to clear it at 9.30 exactly, good job we didn't want seconds ! We were aware breakfast was served until 9.30 and when we arrived at 8.45 thought we would have plenty of time. The breakfast on the second morning was a complete contrast, it was a different member of staff, she was very attentive and everything was fine. We were here on a Travelzoo deal so good value for money but I wouldn't pay full price. Collapse

Clean and comfy ; plenty of car parking ; friendly staff ; free wifi ; reasonably priced. Breafast was fine - nothing special but perfectly edible. Wifi was a bit slow. I'm happy to recommend the hotel and will certainly be staying again!

Having booked a weekend package through Great Little Breaks,I would certainly return. Our room was very clean and comfortable.The restaurant was well spaced and the food was enjoyable.The staff are incredibly helpful, even with a wedding party one afternoon and evening.The duty manager,George,seemed to be always on hand keeping things running smoothly.Not air conditioned but fans are available.Great garden area for seating with under cover area for smokers. This is a great base to travel around local attractions. Collapse

Initially I found the bin in my room to not have been emptied. Not too much of an issues as I know mistakes can be made. But then I realised there was used shampoo open in the shower, toenails and rubbish in the floor and the whole room covered in thick dust, particularly around the bed and tv. it became apparent that my room hadn't been cleaned properly. I complained and was moved to a refurbished room, which to be honest wasn't much better. Poo stains in the toilet, mould around the bath and sink taps and a yellow stained shower curtain which did not give the impression that the room had been refurbished. In the morning I complained to the manager. She told me there was an oingong issue with the cleaning staff which had resulted in many being sacked and a lot of staff were new and she blamed a lack of training. I blame this in incompetence as to me a fundamental part of cleaning a room is emptying a bin and hoovering. The manager didn't even apologise, just made excuses for her staff which lead me to believe that there is no disregard for customers or their attempt to complain. On the plus side, breakfast was ok Collapse
