3/5 Okay

Mixed stay.
Check in & out was fast. Rooms were renovated in recent years with lovely taste. 2 of the 3 beds we had were soft & springy mattresses so not very comfortable. Room 165 was located on 2nd floor and very dark despite a window. Despite this it was spacious with a large bathroom. It also must have been near water tank as all evening & all the next morning constant loud water sounds. Reported this to the manager who was pleasant & empathetic but no other rooms were available on the night. Luckily it was quiet overnight (we presumed this was as no one was showering in other rooms) but it returned again early in the morning. Breakfast was included in our rate, and we stayed during covid19 period so it was a choice of 3 (2 meat one veggie hot options). The veggie was basically the meat without the meat but had no veggie sausages or alternative substitute just eggs tomato beans hash brown mushrooms. Toast & beans both tasted bad clearly a very cheap brand was being used. Otherwise the rest & the croissants were fine. Would have liked fruit to be offered but there was no buffet or options other than tinned grapefruit or prunes on menu.
