Great location
Overall we had a good stay and the staff were mostly very helpful. The hotel location is excellent with outstanding views. We were in the “best” room in the hotel which was fairly spacious with an excellent outlook but the furnishings were a bit IKEA in style. The seats in the turret area were not at all comfortable. We had a concerning issue with the cold water. On the second evening it ran a very dirty brown grey. I reported it to the young lady in the bar as no one else was around and she offered a jug of water but even that had a heavy chlorinated taste. Although we were asked about it at breakfast by the lady and she intimidated it had been reported to the manager no one seemed particularly concerned even though prior to that we had used the same source to drink and fill kettle etc. This was a bit of a concern. We ate one evening in the hotel. The food was fine and the views again fantastic but it is pricey and the restaurant has no real atmosphere and is very barren and echoey. The hotel has great potential but could certainly do a bit more to create a better experience

Lovely staff, clean room
Lovely staff, clean room. Only thing I would say was the room we had had a really small bathroom that looked like it was in a cupboard. Was an old building and could maybe do with being modernised with some paint but overall a lovely stay.
