Eventually very nice

As others have said, the hotel is in need of a bit of a facelift. Clean, no problem, just a bit scruffy round the edges. I stayed four nights, had to ask to change rooms after the first night, the mattress (room 307) was unacceptably hard. I was awake from 3am because I couldn't get comfortable. I hope their buyer reads this and doesn't buy any more of those, apparently it was a brand new mattress, obviously purchased from some sort of wood yard. Room 314 was much better, the bed was very comfortable. Problem now was the kitchen fans made the floor shake. All good after they went off at 10:30. The nice chap next door who decided that having the TV on full blast at 2:30am wasn't the hotel's fault. Aaanyway, I don't like being 'that bloke who complains', but the staff, who were very good throughout, agreed to get the fans turned off a bit earlier. The hotel was full so I couldn't change room again, but in the event the fans weren't as intrusive, so maybe there was just a bit of muck in the mechanism. I played the golf course, which is actually very good. A genuine 1920's Harry Colt design, not long but a lot of fun and not easy.
