  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

When we arrived the room we booked was no longer available as someone extended their stay. We were told that we could swap to that room on the next night, no refund was offered for the difference in price just a food voucher for dinner, which was average. The next day when we went to change rooms it wasn't ready so had to go in another room which I don't think was the one we booked! The breakfast was appalling, you had to pre-book but both days arrived 30 mins late and cold! It was like a childs portion, wouldn't bother booking breakfast and go to the pub up the road instead.
