I’ll be back!!! NOT!!!!!!

Not told they weren’t serving dinner despite phoning hotel on day of arrival. Breakfast has milk which was sour. Cereal and toast was all that was available. Tried emailing hotel for explanation but still not replied 1 month later. Stayed here a few years ago and it was great so really disappointed.

In need of some improvements

Arrived before 3pm check-in so expected to be able to have lunch but were told at reception that they did not serve food but were directed to a tea-room nearby. On returning after 3pm it took nearly 45 minutes to ascertain which two rooms were available for the four of us even though I had confirmation by email that there would be "no problem" with one double and one twin room. Eventually got into room using the key card upside down. Room was clean with comfortable if a bit hard bed. Did not use the shower in the bath as there was no anti-slip mat available.Heating did not switch off as expected during the night so uncomfortably warm. Breakfast just OK. Had to negotiate lots of stairs to and from rooms as there were no lifts - not good as both my sister-in -law and I use a walking stick. On checking out we were asked for 3 different amounts all of which were more than the amount on our paper work which reception had kept from our check-in but could no longer find. Only paid our original bill. This hotel has had a bit of class in the past but although the staff were very helpful it is short staffed and in need of an organizational overhall.

Empty hotel, hardly any staff(although friendly) 1st room was freezing, heating not working, second room dirty, was told the pool and Jim was out of order, found out later it’s been closed for a while. I stayed here around four years ago and it was A really nice hotel, gone downhill a lot
