Avoid.
Do not book this hotel. Absolutely no flexibility whatsoever shown during current pandemic regarding re-booking rooms at a later date - unless we paid full price again! Also a complete lack of communication for four weeks - only responded when hotels.com became involved. Other providers for the trip rebooked at either no or low cost - not this hotel. Those companies know that if you treat your customers fairly during the pandemic, those customers will stick with you in the future. We offered to make a small contribution to rebooking to next year - they came back requesting the full amount again. I wish the staff I dealt with well for the future -they will need with management’s aproach.

Great Place to Stay
Fantastic overall. Reception staff were very friendly. Room was lovely and clean - no fridge or air con that I could see. Breakfast was free and it was fairly decent for a hotel breakfast.

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very old property in desperate need of modernising. Room was extremely hot and pillows uncomfortable. The price we paid was definitely not for a budget hotel, yet the facilities reflected that. The breakfast was adequate, but could have done with a wider selection.
