The hotel was very accommodating considering expedia mixed up our dates and we nearly lost our booking and money . How ever our room was not the style of room we payed for or worth the money charged. We had limited facilities wifi and tv intermittent, radiator in bathroom stuck on and no window to open for air. The hotel resturant or bar was not open due to the current circumstances which we would not have been aware of unless we contacted the hotel before hand. However they did alow us to supply our own food and drink and have in our room and sit in the hotel garden. Breakfast was nice freshly cooked, pre order required a bit confusing as a choice between cooked or continental to be brought to your room but then cooked breakfast was served in dinning room. Which we had to find out for ourselves. Staff very friendly but some not as attentive as others e.g explanation of breakfast on day two as items unavaliable so breakfast a smaller portion we had to ask for missing items to then be told they had ran out. When we had to contact the hotel regarding date mix up from expedia we were told a room that we could have with room number mentioned for convenience and then upon arrival we had a different room, again down graded to what we paid for and on the main road so privacy and peace and quiet distubed as other guests shielded from the rain under the canopy outside our window.

Very clean but dated property. We were not aware that bar and restaurant is not open apart from weekends until after we booked and received an email. This is supposedly clear on the website but it is not as I checked afterwards. Rooms are very small, as is bathroom. Faces onto main A road so very noisy and not being able to open windows meant it was hot and stuffy . Neither aircon or TV worked. This hotels rating is presumably a legacy from days gone by?
