An uncomfortable stay
This place could be really fabulous but it is looking a bit tired. The bed was particularly uncomfortable and the duvet just about covered it. Furnishings were dark and a bit shabby. Bathroom is nicely fitted out but water pressure very temperamental. We did receive a warm welcome and the cooked breakfast was good but not much choice. We didn’t eat dinner there but bar was busy with diners.

Could do with better mattresses
The room was reasonably spacious, the bed / mattress was not the best and the TV in the room was extremely small. Breakfast and service was excellent 👍
