Property conditions & facilities



3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Comfortable stay but breakfast was seriously poor
The check in was great and the desk staff were excellent. The room was clean but very tired and dated, the room could seriously do with a makeover. and the view from our room was somewhat disappointing. The breakfast service was appalling, we stayed for three nights and not once was our order correct., worse being on our second day I ordered plant based bacon as I am a vegetarian and I was served real dead pig 😒. The other two days neither me or my wife were served what we had ordered.. We had a drink in the bar one evening and the barman (French guy I believe) was very good, excellent service.

Nice night away
Nice hotel within walking distance of the town centre, with plenty of on site parking. Our room was spacious, with 2 comfy chairs - a definite plus. We enjoyed both the dinner and breakfast. A good place to stay for a night away.
