    Didn’t realise that check in only up to 8pm, but looking at details it does state this, they were helpful and arranged for someone to be there for me when I arrived later in the evening. Bar was already shut when I arrived at 9.45pm, room was nice and spacious, comfy bed, window didn’t open and too hot could do with a fan in there or the window to be able to open. Only serve breakfast from 8.30am (bit late) could only get cereal and a drink as chef hadn’t turned up.

    No toilet paper in bathroom. Shower not the best. Walls thin. Kept being asked to pay up front by the hotel after booking through Expedia. Breakfast was nice and was included. Setting is very nice.
